Overview

Los Angeles' drugs are run by the undead.

When the LA heroin-addicted vampire and gang leader named RJ reluctantly takes in a twelve year-old prostitute called Bait, humanity is introduced to his otherwise lifeless existence.

An unforgiving, vicious and realistic horror story, Knuckle Supper explores chemical dependency, inner-city brutality, religion, molestation, abortion and the very nature of evil itself.

“In some strange alternate reality, Iceberg Slim wrote a splatterpunk riff on Less than Zero and Knuckle Supper was the unholy spawn.”

Gabe Soria / Author - Life Sucks

"Stepek's blistering, punk infused prose pumps life and heart into street denizens we usually hurriedly walk past and/or around. An audacious street epic with heat and grit so carefully crafted and realized, you'll want to take a shower."

Paul Zimmerman / Geek Monthly Magazine; Femme Fatales

"Drew Stepek's Knuckle Supper hits you like a sucker punch to the gut. It's smart and downright sick which makes it an utterly engrossing read. Leave it to Stepek to create the anti-Twilight."

Mark A. Altman / Producer/Writer – Castle; The Unknowns; Elvis Van Helsing

"They say write what you know. God, I hope not. This junkie vampire street-addled epic weighs in at only ounces less than Anna Karennina, and would no doubt rewrite the part where she goes under the train in sickening, bone-vaporizing detail. Drew Stepek is a splatterpunk Mickey Spillane, doling out rough justice to the creeps you'd meet on Hollywood Boulevard, and taking back the night one star at a time. He learned to write like this at Larry Flynt's Film Threat, and it shows: If there's such a thing as geek vigilante porn, this is it. You wouldn't know it, but there are many of us who've come up the same path, and like Knuckle Supper's damaged avenger, we're out there watching you. Do better -- or else."

Paul Cullum / L.A. Weekly; Film Threat; Arthur

"Drew Stepek's novel, Knuckle Supper, takes us on a dark, headlong rush of a ride as RJ, a vampire, searches the drug and gang-riddled streets of Hollywood for his next blood-soaked high. The novel's breakneck prose propels us along at hellish speeds and is by turn violent, sickening, nasty and laugh-out-loud funny. Though painfully evil, beneath the turbulence and wanton drug abuse, you'll find a searing indictment aimed at addiction and sexual exploitation. By the end, we find ourselves reminded about human misery and the price of the soul. Knuckle Supper makes us wonder who the monster is here - the human or the vampire...? Gut-wrenching stuff..."

Simon Marshall-Jones / Book Geeks
