Vampire Junction

S. P. Somtow


Continuing our series of classic vampire fiction which has included such landmark volumes as Salem’s Lot, The Delicate Dependency and The Vampire Tapestry, we are proud to present S. P. Somtow’s Vampire Junction, universally acclaimed as “…a major reworking of the vampire myth and one of the most original novels of the 1980’s” — Barron (ed.) Horror Literature (4-278).
       Timmy is a vampire, trapped in a child’s body but with centuries of wisdom and survival skills honed to a razor sharpness. He’ll steal your heart and then have it for breakfast. One of the most original and powerful takes on the vampire mythos. Indeed, of the many fine books authored by Somtow Sucharitkul (S. P. Somtow), Vampire Junction may well be his masterpiece.
       Originally published by Donning in 1984 in a fairly lackluster edition we have been painstaking about presenting this fine novel in the handsome format that it deserves. Oversize presentation of 7 × 10 inches, full color dustjacket printed on gorgeous Mohawk Superfine, elegant typesetting, interior illustrations in color and black & white, a new introduction by J. Gordon Melton, reproductions of old editions of the book, a bonus essay by S. P. Somtow, full cloth binding with stamping on spine and front board, and ribbon marker.
       Illustrated by Ivica Stevanovic, who also did the gorgeous dustjacket shown below, this edition of Vampire Junction merits a place on your shelf next to Dracula and the other classics of this genre. Considering the huge number of people who collect vampire fiction, our feeling is this 300-copy signed edition will be gone in short order.
      Limited to 300 copies for sale, the book is bound in cloth, Smyth sewn, with ribbon marker, and custom stamped endpapers. Each copy is signed by S. P. Somtow.
