The town of Carruthers, Texas, has seen its share of drifters and lowlifes. But never anyone like Steven and Earl.
They move from town to town. Hustling the pool halls. Raising a little hell. Drinking a little blood. They sleep by day and hunt by night -- the ultimate predators. The perfect life. Until now.
A barroom brawl ends in disaster. The soil from Steven's grave has been stolen. And a young boy's death sparks an all out war between vampires and mortals that will turn the local Frontier Day celebration into a blood bath....
"Raisor writes a very mean, lean line of prose in Less Than Human. This book resonates with the work of Jim Thompson, Ed Gorman, and a touch of Rod Serling." --Thomas F. Monteleone
"A unique twist on the traditional vampire myth." -- Nancy A. Collins
"One of the great vampire novels." -- Joe R. Lansdale

Definitely one of the most unique and best of the Vampire genre. The book slips forward and back in time and focuses on a variety of different characters. Each of the separate segments is well-written and exciting, and the suspense builds as they begin to mesh. While this story contains all the violence you would expect from vampires, the gore is handled in reasonable detail and the effect is more to intrigue rather than titillate. Although the subject is supernatural, the best elements of the narrative concern human nature. Satisfying after one read, but inspiring a second or third.
