About Bad Vampires

Good vampires are humans with a metabolic need for little sips of blood from willing normal human donors. Bad vampires sip to kill. Good Vampire Lance gets his sips from his normal human girl friend, Carol; he uses lancets so as not to bruise her. Together they battle Bad Vampire Elmer and his cohort, Mad Scientist Dr. Beasly, who are trying to create a movie to hypnotize potential victims, using a giant diamond named Gladstone. After many car chases, ambushes, and explosions (of Mad Scientist laboratories, for example), the issue remains in doubt--until the very end....


I've been a history professor at Towson University, Maryland, since 1966 (semi-retired since 2005), specializing in military history and philosophy of history. I have been a sometime civilian historian in the Army and an Army Intelligence officer. In additional to professional articles dealing with military and diplomatic history, I have written a number of articles concerning popular culture topics, including comic book history; and I am the author of a number of poems and a fantasy short story, plus five novels, including a sequel to "Bad Vampires" another spoof, entitled "Nazi Werewoofs." I have had a life-long love for supernatural stories, especially vampire stories, and most especially spoofs thereof. I live in Pennsylvania with my wife and cat.

What will readers life about your book? 

It's fast-paced, action-based, and pun-laced, a spoof on James Bond movies as much as on vampire movies.

Why did you self-publish? 

I'd already taken the plunge into self-publishing (of my other novels) before I wrote "Bad Vampires," so it seemed easiest to keep on with and Kindle.

Who are your favorite authors in your genre? 

Whoever wrote the scripts for the movies "Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein," "Dead--and Loving it," "Love at First Bite," and other spoofs.


This book, and its sequel, are available from Smashwords, and Nook.
