More About This Book

Overview

A wildly comic romp through the realm of supernatural horror that will have fans of Weird Tales laughing themselves sick and set H. P. Lovecraft spinning in his grave. Charles Winterbottom thinks he's a heroic-adventurer archeologist in the mode of Indiana Jones. But if he's not, Winterbottom at least gets into more deadly perils in a day than Indiana does in a year. It's getting out of them that's hard! Discovering an unknown civilization in an underground catacomb, Winterbottom is immediately captured by the inhabitants and sentenced to be fed to the demon god Azathoth for desecrating a sacred place. As he stares in to the vast, reeking maw of
Azatoth, about to be eaten and shaking in his boots, Winterbottom has not one clue about how to escape. And if knew what lay ahead - encounters with supernatural beings infinitely more terrifying than Azatoth! - Winterbottom would throw himself voluntarily down that demon's gaping maw. Beyond, and infinitely more deadly, than all those perils, at the end of his adventure lies an elegant dinner with a well-known Transylvanian count - with Winterbottom as the main course! Dinner with Dracula is a screwball take on a certain Mythos, and is sure to remind readers of the wacky landscapes and characters of Piers Anthony, Terry Prachett, Robert Adams, and Randall Garrett.

Joe Vadalma is a former technical writer and the author of more than two dozen science fiction and fantasy novels, including the comic Retslu fantasies and futuristic novels like The Artifact and Takeover.
