unnamedJPEG Bats Mobile

The vampire genre, like vampires themselves, refuses to die…. but the vampire satire genre may be ready to take on a life of its own.   That’s probably the only way to describe Fred Barnett’s novel Bats: Return to Damnalot, in which Vlad the Impaler struggles with the encroachment of tour buses on his centuries-old castle and plans to turn his beloved Transylvania into a theme park.   Is his chamber of horrors destined to be turned into a tourist trap?  Fred joined the show to sort it all out for us.
