UNDERLAND by Mick Farren
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Dec. 1, 2002

"Overburdened, but a daring mix of Jules Verne and the vampire genre."

MORE THAN MORTAL by Mick Farren
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Aug. 1, 2001

"Sick minds of the world, rejoice: the story continues!"
For the sake of argument, we can assume that rocker novelist Farren (Darklost, 2000, etc.) has pieced together his eerie saga of super-hip vampire Victor Renquist out of his fertile imagination and a passing acquaintance with the literature of the undead. Read full book review >
DARKLOST by Mick Farren
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: March 1, 2000

"Despite rich plotting and colorfully embossed characterizations, much remains unresolved at novel's end; clearly a third volume is forthcoming."
A sequel to Farren's debut vampire novel, The Time of Feasting (1996), about suave, thousand-year-old Victor Renquist (Master of the Nosferatu in Manhattan) and his problems with the police when his followers get out of hand. Read full book review >
JIM MORRISON'S ADVENTURES IN THE AFTERLIFE by Mick Farren
SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY
Released: Nov. 1, 1999

"Hilarious, mad, and fast: Farren is probably one of the first writers since Baudelaire who in fact would be right at home in hell."
A riotous fantasy in which rock-star novelist Farren (The Time of Feasting, 1996) imagines Jim Morrison wandering through the shades of hell looking for a way out. Read full book review >
THE TIME OF FEASTING by Mick Farren
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Dec. 1, 1996

"The historical background offers considerable originality, while the storytelling speeds along with theatrical trumpery through predictable plot points."
First vampire novel by sf writer Farren (Elvis and the Colonel, 1989, not reviewed) swaggers swankily and advances the genre by creating a new version of vampires' ancestry: Their creators came in UFOs, altered human DNA to fashion the new creatures, and, in their spare time, provided the inspiration for humankind's religions.
