One Foot in the Grave: Vampires Meet the Godfather

Wm. Mark Simmons

Dewey Subject Codes: 813 F Fiction SF Science Fiction
Description:  – Information about this book has been viewed 10597 times, 73 times previously this month.
Fang-in-cheek story of an ex-English Lit lecturer working night shift at the local radio station because his curious wasting and Michael-Jackson paling disease makes him intolerant of sunshine ... no appetite either ... harder to shave, because his reflection in the mirror gets paler by the night ... Yes, he's turning into a vampire, or at least is some kind of hybrid vampire. Which is why one group of the undead wiseguys kidnaps him while another mob of wiseguys tries to kill him. He is just about to meet the godfather of the Seattle mob when ... the sample chapter ends. You'll have to buy the book if you want to know the rest. Verdict: no worse than Stephen King's "Riding the Bullet", and better written. This Description by: meg from Melbourne.
Comment By: Phil Sevetson – Somewhere, CT – July 26, 2003, 09:53
4* out of 5*! A very good read for those who like both action and vampires. Simmons' hero is a wisecracking cynic of the sort familiar to those who read old detective novels, who is haunted by the ghost of his wife and hunted for the strangeness of his disease. And that's just in the first two chapters. Murder, magic, bigotry, ancient evil and modern malice; a little bit of not-particularly-explicit sex, and a good ending. A sequel exists (I liked it just as well), and both books are now available as ebooks from Ewebscriptions (, Baen Books' epublishing affiliate.

Children's Chapter Books are books aimed at a children's audience that is more advanced than the short 'booklet' type stories but which is not quite ready for the more advanced 'Young Adult' level.

* You may want a copy of this book in the form of a planar cellulose information retrieval system, i.e. a printed book. They make good gifts, and are more familiar to most of us than electronic copies. But finding a printed copy of a book is sometimes difficult. This section is intended to give you some help by making it easy to use the more common ways of searching.

1 The first column consists of links to the home pages of the biggest suppliers of books by mail: Amazon and Barnes & Noble. These two suppliers have mostly new books, and their new book inventory probably has an overlap of something like 90%, but this does not mean that they both have exactly the same price. Both of them also list used books from outside suppliers, and the used book inventories are usually quite different. ABE Books is a loose grouping of some 17,000 independent bookstores that list their inventory in a common database - most of these are used books that vary from just issued best sellers to rare and antique books.

From all three home pages you can do searches, look at comments, check prices of both new and used copies, look at various formats such as hardback, paperback, eBook formats and much more.

2 The second column has links to Barnes & Noble and Amazon pages describing their new eBook Readers. These have become very popular lately as they allow the purchase of new books and textbooks at prices lower than the printed copies, and in a format that many people find attractive.

3 Clicking on the links in the third column sends you to the supplier along with the ISBN (International Standard Book Number) of the book described on this page if we have been able to find that number. Note that an ISBN refers to a specific edition of a book. Thus a single book might have many ISBNs: Hardback edition, softback, large print, foreign language and so on. Usually the book listing on B & N or Amazon will have links to the other editions that are available.

4 Is our ISBN wrong, or perhaps missing all together. Help us out. Search on B&N and Amazon. If you find one, please let us know. Enter the thirteen (Barnes & Noble) or ten (Amazon) digit number (no dashes) in the boxes above and click on the Submit ISBN button. The numbers shown in the boxes are the numbers we have on file, or zero if we haven't found one.
