Just wanted to let those of you who are interested in my Jules Duchon books know that Bride of the Fat White Vampire got a brace of terrific reviews in the August issues of Locus, Science Fiction Chronicle, and Vampirella Magazine, plus the September Fangoria. Also, interviews with yours truly will appear in issue 7 of Vampirella Magazine, which should show up on the newsstands the last week of September or thereabouts, and in the October issue of New Orleans Magazine.

Shameless self-promotion over; we now return you to your regularly scheduled program.

There's a VAMPIRELLA magazine?

Bride OTFWV kicked very large butt, by the way. I don't suppose you'd consider doing a period piece detailing the wartime adventures of the Hooded Terror and his young sidekick?

Dear Kage,

Yes, Virginia, there is a Vampirella Magazine, a spinoff from the Vampirella comic and a resurrection of the Warren publication of the 1960s-70s. It features a couple of Vampirella comics stories each month, plus book and movie reviews, articles on the horror industry, and interviews with horror creators in and out of the comics field.

I do have plans to do a book revealing the wartime careers of the Hooded Terror and Doodlebug, and how those careers have their repurcussions in the present. . . if and when Ballantine lets me know they're interested in more Jules Duchon books. Otherwise, I'll probably have to wait until rights to the first two "Fat White Vampire" books revert to me, and then I'll attempt to resell them to another publisher, along with fresh material. Alternatively, I might consider doing a series of short pieces, if the novel series dies off for the time being. Thanks for the interest and support!

Hi Andrew,

I didn't know that your Fat White Vampire Blues was available in Japanese!

Well, I already have both of your books in English and will get to them soonest.

Yep, Andrews Press in Japan has come out with a nifty Japanese language version of Fat White Vampire Blues. My translator sent me a copy. I'm really, really impressed by the packaging -- if this book is any indication, Japanese paperbacks are much sturdier and more handsomely constructed than American-style trade paperbacks (sort of like Honda Civics versus Chevy Cavaliers). If you live in Japan, please encourage your friends to go out and buy copies of the Andrews Press edition. If it's a sell-out or close to it, they'll also want to acquire the rights to Bride of the Fat White Vampire, which, of course, would make me very happy.

Hope you enjoy the books in English!
