Overview

CAN A SEVEN HUNDRED YEAR OLD TRANSYLVANIAN FIND TRUE LOVE WITH A REVOLUTIONARY RYSEMIAN FISH-WOMAN?

Introduction by Theodore Sturgeon

After seven hundred years, Glamorous vampire Sterling O'Blivion has begun to think the joy is going out of life. Then she meets Virginia Woolf in the ladies' room of a dance studio in Chicago. But Woolf is really Benaroya, a dolphin-like alien anthropologist here to learn all there is to know about humanity and to fight the good fight against the evil, slave-trading Sajorians. Sterling falls madly in love with Benaroya. It's just the sort of romp an aging vampire needs-but first, to defeat the Sajorians, they have to sell millions of Famous Men's Sperm Kits to every woman on Earth.

"Scott carries on the tradition of Mark Twain, using outside observers to remark on society. Targets include ... the treatment of women ... consumer culture and the general human willingness to be led by the nose by a charismatic figure. ... ... a message needed now more than ever." Publisher's Weekly

"A lot of of fun ... its real appeal is in Scott's stabs at the foibles and shortcomings of our society. Jody Scott sees things with a clear eye. You must read carefully, for she can point a caustic finger with a single throwaway line. And when she really winds up, everything is fair game: big business, the military, politics, religion and more. In addition to sharpness and criticism, there are wackiness, clever dialogue, action and lots of love. I enjoyed this one immensely and recommend it highly." -The Seattle Times

"I liked I, Vampire enough to check it off on the Nebula ballot." -Pamela Sargent

"Exuberantly clever and wildly iconoclastic... If you thirst for something really witty, quirky, with bags of brains [...] you'll do no better than this wonderful novel." -For Books' Sake

"Those who seek to deride feminist SF often suggest that it is too serious and po-faced, but Jody Scott's wild imagination, seemingly scattershot but tightly controlled, makes ... an absurdly comic romp of unexpected juxtapositions and witty asides." -SF Mistressworks
