In Bride of the Fat White Vampire, Andrew Fox's sequel to his debut novel, Fat White Vampire Blues -- a laugh-out-loud, satirical look at the horror genre -- Jules Duchon, a 500-pound, bloodsucking taxi driver, will do anything to bring his dead stripper girlfriend back to life.
Jules's old sidekick Rory "Doodlebug" Richelieu, a transvestite vampire educated by Tibetan monks, has a problem: He has been strong-armed into finding out who is systematically mutilating members of an aristocratic vampire clan in New Orleans; and if he can't solve the mystery posthaste, the patriarch of the family will destroy a meditative institute Doodlebug has worked hard to make successful. Doodlebug turns to his friend Jules for help.
He finds Jules in the form of a swarm of fat white rats feasting on New Orleans cuisine in a back-alley dumpster. After using his mystical powers to transform Jules back into his morbidly obese human form, Doodlebug makes a deal: Jules will investigate the bizarre mutilations if Doodlebug can somehow bring his girlfriend (who is now a pile of ashes) back to life. Add to the mix a looming vampire race war, a satanic rock star, a greedy catfish magnate, and one very important wayward rat, and sidesplitting chaos ensues!
Fans of authors like Anne Rice, Laurell K. Hamilton, Chelsea Quinn Yarbro, and P. N. Elrod will absolutely love this corpulent comedy and its supersized antihero. After reading Bride of the Fat White Vampire, fans of vampiric fiction will never look at gothic romanticism the same way again. In a word: hilarious. Paul Goat Allen
