The lifeless too have hopes...

And one of the hopeful useless is Alex Resartus: obtuse professor, imprecise novelist, schizophrenic...and vampire.

As an obtuse professor, he bewilders and frustrates his bored scholars; as an imprecise novelist with a once-promising acceptance, he wants to recuperate his artistic powers, yet his shattered brain stands within the method. As a schizophrenic, Alex's brain is "broken", and during this most original novel, A SELF-MADE MONSTER, Alex plans to reorganize his damaged brain with entire blood. For Alex's distinct quirk - either his blessing and his curse - is that he is taking at the features of his sufferers in so much stunning ways.

Alex sees the intense and socially backward pupil, Edward Head, as his savior: Edward's disciplined and robust brain is simply the tonic Alex must rejuvenate his artistic powers. yet Alex isn't the just one with hopes. The dwelling between him have their very own hopes. Edward¿s hopes are carnal. He wants either Holly Dish, an amalgam of sweaty undergraduate daydreams, and Claire candy, a returning grownup coed who's either cool and mysterious. Holly and Claire too have their very own hopes, as does the quick and cynical Jimmy Stubbs, who hates to check and likes to drink beer and scheme. The hopes of every personality intersect and at last violently knot - generating a twisting climax that leaves a few characters lifeless and others approximately to delight in an brilliant monetary windfall.

By turns violent and humorous, A SELF-MADE MONSTER is without doubt one of the most unique vampire novels ever released. It strips away the drained clichés and red prose of the vampire tale and replaces them with dead-on characterizations, a galloping plot, and a brand new notion of the vampire itself.

Darum hatte sie Nathaniel begleiten und ihm einen Partner aussuchen sollen. �Elizabeth ist weg«, sagte Gregory. «, fragte er. « �Das ist noch nicht alles«, meinte er darauf. �Wie kann das sein, Gregory? Ihr habt mir alle erklärt, dass diese Clubs sicher sind. Ein bisschen Bondage, ein paar Klapse auf den Hintern. Ihr alle habt mich überzeugt, dass ich ihn sowieso nicht ewig davon fernhalten kann. Und dass sie da Überwachungsmethoden haben, damit keinem etwas passiert. Du, Zane und Cherry, ihr habt mir das gesagt.

Die Latexstiefel reichten bis übers Knie und glänzten wie mit Spucke poliert. Alles an ihm glänzte, die dunkle Kleidung und die weiße Haut. Dann drehte er abrupt den Kopf, als hätte er meinen Blick gespürt. Ich hielt den Atem an. Er war schön, zum Weinen schön, auf maskuline Art, aber hart an der Grenze zum Femininen. Nicht androgyn, aber nah dran. Er kam mir entgegen und wirkte dabei vollkommen männlich. Der Gang, die Haltung der Schultern - so bewegte sich keine Frau. Jason tätschelte mir die Hand.

Denn sie haben gespürt, dass deine Abwehr Löcher hat. « �Ohne Richard und mich wärst du besiegt worden. Du hättest dich ohne die Berührung mit uns nicht schützen können. Solange ich bei dir in der Stadt war, funktionierte das. « �Oui«, sagte er leise. �Das ist mir nicht klar gewesen, Jean-Claude. Ich bin mir zwar nicht sicher, ob es etwas geändert hätte, aber ich habe das nicht gewusst. Oh Gott, Richard muss verzweifelt sein - er tötet nicht wie wir. « Ich ließ den Satz in der Luft hängen und spürte noch einmal das kalte Entsetzen, mit dem mir klar geworden war, wie sehr ich uns drei gefährdet hatte.
