book cover

Misunderstood vampire Sterling O'Blivion was working at a dance studio in Chicago when the Rysemian starships landed and things began to change for the better. For one thing, the aliens could take any form they chose, human or otherwise, and Sterling fell head over heels for the one called Benaroya, who was presently disguised as Virginia Woolf. For another, Sterling got a neat new job as chief spokesperson for the aliens' front operation selling the Famous Men's Sperm Kit.

After seven hundred years, Sterling had begun to think the joy was going out of life. Now she had the chance to turn into Mr. Spock, to dance with Abraham Lincoln, and to fall wildly and truly in love. It was just the sort of romp an aging vampire needed.

Qvamp says:

Wow. I don't really know what to say about this book. I guess it had a point, but it was written so nonlinearly, and so disjointedly it's tough to say what the point was. This is the story of a lesbian vampire who works as a dance instructor, has invented a time machine and who has now met an alien fish in Virginia Woolf's body. Not a lick of it makes much sense.

This book appears to be satire, and seems to be making a point about how shallow society is, and how we waste our time on meaningless pursuits. But it seems like it could have been done better.
