Press Release - Vamps (A retrospective) by James S. Dorr

VAMPS (A RETROSPECTIVE) is an 84-page trade paperback featuring poetry by multi-time Rhysling finalist James S. Dorr on vampires and things vampiric. With illustrations by Marge B. Simon, VAMPS (A RETROSPECTIVE) consists of 75 poems, about a third of which are published here for the first time, with subjects including Max Schreck; Bela Lugosi; “Guillemette” (née Mina Murray); the vampiress Annchuck; the Instrument Maker; crows; krakens (with blood on their beaks); Nikki (who flies); the Night Child; the Birdcatchers; jazz music; dancing; tourists in Europe (“he had a tendency to change the subject when I asked him what he did. Eurotrash, I suppose”); vampire hobbies: runners, swimmers, baseball fans, dates gone bad; from Ancient Greece; to the 1,000,000 Credit Galactic Lottery. All this and more can be obtained from Sam's Dot Publishing for only about the cost of a pizza (with blood sausage for a topping, of course -- in this case $7.00 with $3.00 shipping in the US; a, um, bit more to Canada and overseas).
