Joe Vampire is a fresh, feisty, darkly comedic take on the vampire novel that asks the question: what happens when an average guy becomes a card-carrying member of the undead? The answer isn’t pretty...but it IS pretty hilarious.
Joe was just an average guy with an office job, a synthesizer band, and crush on a girl in the marketing department, until a horrible misunderstanding on a date with friends turned him into a real-life vampire. It didn’t take long for him to find out the afterlife isn’t nearly as glamorous as he’s been led to believe; it ruined his already-struggling love life, damaged things with his best friend, and pushed him away from his crazy family. So he’s letting the whole world know what it’s really like to be a card-carrying member of the undead, fighting his ridiculous situation every step of the way. But not everyone is happy to find out the truth, and for every ally he finds in the vampire world, there’s an enemy lurking in the real one, just waiting for a chance to show Joe a little vampire truth of their own...
"Through a superb mixture of insightful reflection and blunt force wit, Luna has done something remarkable. The vampire's humanity that Anne Rice strives for in The Vampire Chronicles? He captures it perfectly and smartly in his modern tale of the supernatural everyman." - Clayton Smith, best-selling author of Apocalypticon and Anomaly Flats
"Most vampire books are heavy on the suspension of disbelief...not so with Joe Vampire; author Steven Luna makes Joe's journey a very believable, very realistic, very palpable one." - Rusty Fisher, author of Vamplayers (A Living Dead Love Story)
