Twenty-five years? It's been twenty-five years since I read this? Good God. That's horrific in and of itself. Fortunately, this book has aged almost as well as I have *coughcough* and is still a fun and wild read. No sparkly vampires here, kids, just the good old-fashioned kind that murder with abandon, thrive on power and vengeance, and live in a world of Reaganomics, Miami Vice and Motorola pagers.
John Skipp and Craig Spector, the fathers of Splatterpunk, wrote six novels together before splitting off and doing their own thing, and this one was the first. If you like your horror old-school and full of sex, violence and rock and roll, you should do yourself a favor and pick this one up. It'll take you back, brother.
Especially if you're as old as I am.
Now get off my lawn!

I read this book as a paperback back in the good ol' days. I consider it one of the best true horror vampire tales: frightening, bloody and violent. When I saw that this title was being offered as an e-book, I purchased it immediately. If you like horror novels, you should buy it, too. You won't be disappointed.
