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.

Start with ONE FOOT IN THE GRAVE and then continue with the other books in the series...

HABEAS CORPSES

Baen Books 2005

Two years ago Christopher Csjthe survived a blood transfusion with a master vampire only to discover that he was infected with one of the two viruses that transform the living into the undead.  Since then he has survived by his wits as men, monsters, and government agencies have hunted him for secrets his mutated blood may hold.

His personal life is almost as troublesome as the assassins that keep turning up in ever increasing numbers: his bodyguard is a sexy vampire, his jealous werewolf lover can't abide his touch after a silver bullet poisons his blood, and the ghost of his dead wife is being siphoned off by some dark and mysterious force that transcends the grave.  The "neighbors" from the cemetary next door tend to drop by every night and someone is sending him grotesque messages in the form of dismembered body parts that are still alive!

Being almost undead has already provided a coffin-load of challenges.  But this time around an assassin's bullet knocks Csejthe out of his body and into the afterlife as he journeys through the realm of the truly dead before a final showdown with an evil spawned in Nazi Germany.  An evil kept alive through genetic manipulation and nanotechnology and waiting only for Csejthe's blood to overcome the last hurdle to immortality!
