Go-Go to the bookstores!

Did you know that Victor Gischler is a master multi-tasker?
Let's see here... Victor's a world traveler, beer-swiller, chicken-wing gobbler, dangerous golfer, and a film buff. AND he has a sexy new spoof coming out tomorrow!

"Satirist Gischler (Go-Go Girls of the Apocalypse, 2008) returns to take on vampires, the most popular of the paranormal creatures currently abounding in popular fiction. This literary spoof on the horror novel finds clueless graduate student Allen in Prague, serving as a research assistant for a professor with a pale, enigmatic, and voluptuous wife. Everyone but Allen seems to have some clue as to what is going on, from the young women who kidnap him and claim to be witches, to the machine-gun-toting Jesuits. As Allen careens around Prague, just trying to stay alive, a plot to resurrect Renaissance-era alchemy experiments in the cellars of Prague Castle comes to a head. The larger story is narrated by a ghost whose spirit is trapped in the castle and who was involved in the original alchemical research. A possible read-alike for sleeper hit Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2009)." - Booklist
