Overview

"I came with the intent of conducting an intelligent scientific investigation, and instead I've walked into a damned Gremlins movie," says vampire professor of the paranormal, Tommy as he and his shotgun-toting vampire friend Stacey confront a foul-mouthed, blood-sucking little monster in "The Thing In Stacey's Garage."

Just so you know -- this ain't your kid sister's vampire fiction.

Sex, Blood, & Rock 'n Roll picks up right where Unholy War left off, bringing you 12 short stories from the hard-hitting, hard-rocking Hollywood Vampires universe!

Ranging from the rock 'n roll vengeance of "Six-String Alchemy" to the quietly introspective "Insomnia" to the absolutely, ridiculously insane "The Thing In Stacey's Garage," Sex, Blood, & Rock 'n Roll reveals a surprisingly human side to our fanged friends...

And even puts a philosophically-thoughtful twist on the storied relationship between werewolves and vampires -- and hope for the future -- in "Evolution."

Vampires are more than cape-clad predators and angst-ridden forever-teens -- they're as uniquely human as you, with their own hopes, dreams, and fears... just because you become a vampire doesn't mean you stop being YOU.

You're given a glimpse at this in "The Choice (Michelle's Tale)" -- a direct follow-up to Unholy War -- where a young woman must choose whether or not she wants to become a vampire... and the pros and cons of that life-changing choice.

Vampirism isn't a curse -- it's an opportunity, and if you're strong enough to embrace it with your heart and soul, the sky's the limit! But even then, you've got to look out, because there are other things lurking in the dark, things that like the taste of vampires...

You'll meet a few of them in the steamy 80's thriller "Hunter Hunted," where vampire bassist Dorian suddenly finds the tables turned on him by something not of this earth!

And let's not forget modern-day Lovecraftian horror of "The Gas Station That Time Forgot," where Tommy's search for a beloved soda from decades past turns into a terrifying descent into madness beneath a bizarre desert gas station...

Laced with rock 'n roll attitude, an abundance of humor, and tons of explosive action, Sex, Blood, & Rock 'n Roll will change how you look at vampires forever... the old rules don't apply here.

Just like what happens to half-vampires Katheryne and Donita during a hilarious, high-speed highway quest for a stolen car in "Who's Been Driving My Cadillac?" you never know what's gonna happen!

In addition to 12 exclusive tales, Sex, Blood, & Rock 'n Roll also includes biographies for each of the characters -- including the fan-favorite purple rat, Stephen! -- illustrated by Nathaniel D. Smith.

Meet the Author

Matt R. Jones is a stubbornly independent fellow hailing from the American Midwest that writes off-the-wall vampire and horror fiction for fun and a little bit of profit.

He'd like to do this for a living someday, but for the moment, he's just happy that people from Great Britain to Australia to New Zealand have been reading and loving his stories since 1998.
