Christopher Moore has posted the first two chapters to his third vampire book Bite Me. Here is a small sample:
You can read the rest here. Bite Me releases March 23rd as a hardcover. If you've never tried a Chris Moore book do yourself a favor and get a copy of Lamb, The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove, or Bloodsucking Fiends, which was the first vampire read. I'm very partial to Lust Lizard, but Lamb is probably his best. Also, Moore is doing a special event November 19th with the New Jersey Shakespeare Company where he will be doing a presentation and signing. There will also be a performance from his latest book Fool with some of the actors from the company.
Being the Journal of Abigail Von Normal
Emergency Back-up Mistress of the Greater Bay Area Night
The city of San Francisco is being stalked by a huge, shaved vampyre cat named Chet, and only I, Abby Normal, emergency back-up mistress of the greater Bay Area night, and my manga-haired love monkey, Foo Dog, stand between the ravenous monster and a bloody massacre of the general public. Which isn’t, like, as bad as it sounds, because the general public kind of sucks ass.
Still, I think that this battle of dark powers, the maintenance of my steamy, forbidden romance, the torturous brea- in of a new pair of red vinyl, thigh-high Skankenstein platform boots, as well as the daily application of complex eye make-up and whatnot, totally justify my flunking Biology 102, (Introduction to Mutilation of Preserved Marmot Cadavers, with Mr. Snavely, who totally has his way with the marmots when no one is around, I have it on good authority.) But try to tell that to the mother unit, who deserves this despair and disappointment for cursing me with her tainted and small-boobed DNA.
Allow me to catch you up, S‘il vous plait. Pay attention, bitches, there will be a test.
