Outstanding. Very good news.
If you like late-night ‘B’ movies; the good guys winning and the bad guys losing; big guns; romance, and good, healthy, creative violence — then you should
read buy this book.
Speaking of one of the reasons I like Monster Hunter International, when did vampires — formerly the Varsity team for the Bad Guys — turn into such … wusses?
Seriously, vampires used to have an entire chapter of the Book of Arse Kicking devoted to them. Yes, they had back-stories, but that was just stuff to fill-in after the initial neck-biting, but before the massacre started.
When Gary Oldman’s Dracula lost his girlfriend, did he write bad poetry and mope? No! He took a sword to the interior design, and kicked loyal servants through the bars of their cell.
Not only did Jerry Dandridge fail to agonize over his undead existence, he savoured it. Hell, he even went to the trouble of having dessert after his snacks.
When the vampire appears on the screen, the audience should be urging the heroes to track him down and pound a stake through his undead heart — the audience shouldn’t be wishing that the hero would give the vampire a wedgie and stuff him into a locker.
But that’s just me.
