Out for Blood by John Peyton Cooke
An avid reader of Dracula and a fan of old Hammer horror films, Chris Callaway has always fantasized about becoming a vampire--and the idea of immortality is even more alluring now that he has been diagnosed with a terminal illness. So when a vampire appears at his apartment and offers him eternal life as one of the undead, Chris jumps at the opportunity.
But unexpected terrors await him in the world of the night. A new enemy, relentless and insatiable, is hunting vampires for his own evil purposes. And unless Chris can stop him, he will face a fate even worse than death ...
One of the few gay-themed novels of the horror publishing boom of the '80s and '90s, John Peyton Cooke's groundbreaking and tremendously entertaining Out for Blood (1991) returns to print at last in this edition, which includes a new afterword by the author.
