& Taylor

On the brink of failing out of school, graduate student Allen Cabbot agrees to participate in a research project to save his academic career. He is swept into an adventure with witches, vampires, ghosts, and a hunt for the famed philosopher's stone and its transforming powers.

Just as Go-Go Girls of the Apocalypse was a “raucous thrill ride” (Publishers Weekly) and a playful stab at the post-apocalypse story, Vampire a Go-Go is a satirical take on the modern horror story—providing more laughs and unforgettable characters.

Victor Gischler is a master of the class-act literary spoof—a unique niche in which he has few equals. He has tackled many popular genres with his wry wit: crime noir, the post-apocalyptic subgenre, and now the horror novel genre. Frequently compared to Kurt Vonnegut, Thomas Pynchon, and Quentin Tarantino, Gischler turns his attention to castles, astrologers, alchemists, ghosts, witches, gun-toting Jesuit priests, and werewolves with Vampire a Go-Go, a hilarious romp of spooky, gothic entertainment. Allen is a hapless grad student in trouble. He’s about to flunk out of school and there is not much that can be done to salvage his GPA—except to redeem himself by accompanying an eccentric professor and his enigmatic wife on a research trip to a castle in Prague. But Allen doesn’t know he’ll end up in a hunt for a supernatural device that can restore the humanity to the undead. Narrated by a ghost whose spirit is chained to the mysterious castle, Vampire a Go-Go is full of twists and surprises that will have readers screaming—and laughing—for more.

Amusing romp through Prague with battle tested Jesuits, werewolf, vampire, ghosts, witches, warlocks and zombies. A quick and funny read for those with a little bit warped sense of humour.
