A Collection of Vampire Shorts
Feeling hungry for more vampire fiction from the author of Touched and Blood Relations? Then prepare yourself for three novellas exploring a modern-day Texas vampire coven.
In A Phone Man Visits the Vampires, telephone repairman Mortimer Gorski agrees to install an ISDN line in the home of people who may or may not be...goths. But as the evidence mounts that the coven is real, the sun slips lower. Can Mortimer get way without being asked to stay for "a bite to eat"?
Then in Job Interview With a Vampire, Vicky the vampire decides to risk exposure and take on a new job working night security. On the bus trip to her interview, Vicky meets a young halfling who coerces her into revealing more about herself than she intends. But if Bethany Davis seems like trouble she's nothing compared to the gang of creatures who've hatched a scheme to "skim the books" at the blood and tissue center. Will Vicky convince the burglars to leave without a fight? And what can she do about Bethany's growing interest?
Finally, in Star Raving Bonkers, Vicky is talked into attending a rave with Bethany and her older brother Blake, But Vicky gets far more than a snack, including some romantic attention that could cost her her place in the coven. In this erotic conclusion, Vicky also exposes herself to the police, among others. But in the heat of bloodlust, the worst choice Vicky could make ends up being the only man she wants to fulfill her other appetites.
Packed with dark humor, these three stories will please anyone looking for vampires who avoid whining, and who don't sparkle...99.8% of the time.*
