HALF/LIFE (Almost a Vampire) Series

The Half/Life Series features the adventures of Chris Csjthe, caught in the twilight world between the living and the dead.

Humor meets horror when a blood transfusion with a vampire infects Csjthe with only one of the two necrotic viruses that transforms the living into the undead.

Classic horror tropes abound and mix like a Rubrik's Cube of the Damned in this Dark Fantasy series as Csjthe must learn how to survive when both the living and the undead want him for the secrets that his unique blood chemistry may yield.

Back Cover

THE LIVING DEAD WERE MAKING HIS LIFE A LIVING HELL...

A year ago, Chris Csjthe was completely human - then a blood transfusion from the Lord of the Undead changed everything. Now he is a hunted man, sought by human and vampire alike for the secrets he knows and the powers that his mutated blood may bestow. So far he's dodged undead assassins, werewolves, a 6,000-year-old Egyptian necromancer, and Vlad Dracula himself. But now he's really got problems.

The dead are turning up on his doorstep after dark to ask for justice and the police want to know where all those corpses are coming from. Undead terrorists are testing a doomsday virus on his new hometown and he's caught in the crossfire between a white supremacist militia and the resurrected Civil War dead. His werewolf lover, jealous of his dead wife's ghost, has left him. And the centuries-old and still very beautiful (and very deadly) Countess Bathory is determined to have his uniquely transformed blood for her own dark purposes.

Now, more than ever, life sucks!

 

A Few Reviews...

"In this lighthearted...contemporary vampire tale...plots and subplots and vignettes abound, involving Vlad Dracula, Erzebet Bathory the Blood Countess, biotechnology and a biowar conspiracy using tailored viruses...fans of the early Terry Pratchett or Eric Flint's Joe fantasies will enjoy the humorous bits."

--Publishers Weekly

 

"...(Chris Csjthe) is back for a new and even greater (and funnier) adventure...Snappy dialogue, lots of amusing details, a clever plot, and a generally witty sense of humor...one of those rare novels that combine levity and the supernatural in just the right balance."

--Chronicle

 

"Readers who desire something offbeat but humorous in their fantasy horror literature will want to read Dead on My Feet...this book is fun."

--Midwest Book Review
