Sir John Falstaff—yes, the Shakespearean rogue—is undead & misbehaving in San Francisco in The Falstaff Vampire Files, published by Pearlsong Press in September 2011. Middle-aged psychologist Kris Marlowe doesn't believe in vampires, but when she's attacked by a horde of murderous monsters she must seek help from the most famous rogue in history, who once drank ale and now drinks only blood.

"There is ample fun to be found in The Falstaff Vampire Files, which posits a cozy alliance of San Francisco humans & vampires against a far more evil force which equally terrifies them both," says Andrew Fox, author of Fat White Vampire Blues, Bride of the Fat White Vampire & The Good Humor Man: or, Calorie 3501. "Lynne Murray's subtle, generous sense of humor & deft characterization skills result in a cast readers will feel happy having spent time with, particularly the vampire of the title, a refugee from Shakespearean times who turns out, in his own unkempt and boisterous way, to be every lonely single woman's fondest dream."

The Falstaff Vampire Files is available in original trade paperback & ebook formats from your favorite booksellers (including & as well as directly from Pearlsong Press.
