"...Peace, love, dove, beads, bells, incense, light shells, crash pads and Hari Krishna all you groovy freaks. You having a good time? Far out and solid..."
What a hip-happenin' book this is. Vampire Baron Rudolfo Zginskiis outed in 1915 England by Sir Frances Colby and staked with a gold crucifix. 75 years later, the Baron gets a new lease on the dead-life. He is brought back in America to a world that has vampires who read and believe all the Hollywood press clips. They don't even realize that the sun has no effect on them. The Baron has to deal with this mass ignorance while he tries to plot his revenge against the one man that caused his forced retirement for the last 65 years. There is a cast of righteous characters that brought back memories of the bell-bottoms and tie-dye days of past.
This is Bledsoe's first novel. I am already reading his 2nd novel, a SF story about a quirky private investigator from c.1250, who packs a fast sword and likes faster blonds.
