This is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine, that features upcoming book releases we can't wait to read (which I found out about over at He Followed Me Home.)
My pick for this week is:
Vampire a Go-Go
by Victor Gischler
Publication date: September 1, 2009
From the Publisher:
HORROR AT ITS SIDE-SPLITTING BEST!
Victor Gischler is a master of the class-act literary spoof, and his work has drawn comparison to that of Douglas Adams, Kurt Vonnegut, and Thomas Pynchon. Now, Gischler turns his attention to werewolves, alchemists, ghosts, witches, and gun-toting Jesuit priests in Vampire a Go-Go, a hilarious romp of spooky, Gothic entertainment. Narrated by a ghost whose spirit is chained to a mysterious castle in Prague, Gischler's latest is full of twists and surprises that will have readers screaming --and laughing--for more.
What could be better than a book about supernatural beings written by someone in a league with these illustrious authors? Having just finished reading Christopher Moore, who has also been compared to Vonnegut and Adams, and recently becoming hooked on the HBO series True Blood, it sounds like the perfect combo for me. Serve it up!
