I read it in a single sitting."--Tim Cahill, author of Pass the Butterworms, Hold the Enlightenment, and Jaguars Ripped My Flesh "Linda Watanabe McFerrin charms us with a winding tale of an evil enchantment.

The Dead Travel Fast: Stalking Vampires from Nosferatu to Count Chocula

by Eric Nuzum

From the Book jacket: THE DEAD TRAVEL FAST is about vampires, death, chickens, fear, things that smell bad, the love of a good woman, and germs...but mostly it's about vampires. The undead are everywhere. They're not just in movies and books, but in commercials, fetish clubs, and even your breakfast cereal. If you look, you'll discover that bloodsuckers have gone from guest spots in rural folktales to becoming some of the most recognizable bad guys in the modern world. Eric Nuzum wanted to find out how and why this happened. And he found the answer in goth clubs, darkened parks, haunted houses, and...chain restaurants. Nuzum was willing to do whatever it took to better understand the vampire phenomenon. He traveled across Transylvania on a tour hosted by Butch Patrick (a.k.a. Eddie Munster), sat through Las Vegas's only topless vampire revue, hung out with assorted shady characters, and spent hours in a coffin. He even drank his own blood-just one more step in his quest to understand the weird, offbeat world of vampires and the people who love them. The Dead Travel Fast is the hilarious result of this bloody, gory, and often foolhardy journey. With his unmatched firsthand experience, Eric Nuzum delivers a wide-ranging look at vampires in pop culture, from Bram to Bela to Buffy, and at what vampires and vampirism have come to mean to us today. And the blood? Let's just say it doesn't go with eggs. ERIC NUZUM is a recovering pop culture critic, VHI pundit, and author of Parental Advisory: Music Censorship in America. He writes a lot of inane stuff that falls somewhere between the styles of Ted Kaczynski and Robert Frost, with a dash of inappropriate jokes thrown in for good measure. Nuzum was awarded the 2002 RTNDA National Edward R. Murrow Award for newswriting, and his work has appeared in a few publications you've heard of and many more that you haven't. He works for National Public Radio in Washington, D.C, and lives with his wife in that same general area. He opines regularly on his Web site, at www.ericnuzum.com.
