Review from "The Horror Fiction Review"

on 1/25/2007

WEEP NOT FOR THE VAMPIRE by William A. Veselik (2006 Mundania Press / 183 pp. / tp & e-book) It’s been a while since I’ve read a vampire novel, and I forgot how much fun they can be when done the right way. Cullen Roark returns home to the Virginia town where he was turned into a vampire; now displeased with his dark existence, he seeks to commit suicide--until he discovers a daughter and a granddaughter he never knew he had--and that another, more vicious vampire is after his newfound family. This is author Veselik’s debut novel, and as far as vampire stories go, I can’t see any fan of the The Undead being disappointed. Our protagonist’s ability to make others believe he’s someone else gives the tale a nice little edge (especially when he uses this power to mess with the opposing vamp’s buddy), and there’s some very good, carefully placed humor that doesn’t take away from the effective modern-Goth feel of the story. Veselik’s love for vampires can be felt on each page of this brief novel, and it should come as no surprise that he’s a life long fan of them. Weep Not for the Vampire is a fun, quick read that will sit well with those looking for an old-school monster mash. My only gripe is the tacky, computer-generated cover art (something Mundania Press seriously needs to reconsider in its future releases).

Product Overview

A vampire, weary of his undead existence and haunted by his recent slaying of an innocent child, returns to his rural Virginia hometown planning to find some method of destroying himself. He unexpectedly discovers a daughter and granddaughter he never knew he had and learns--to his horror--that one of his own kind is now preying on his grandchild. Before he confronts the rival undead, the vampire manages to make his final peace with the wife he left behind and free them both from a love that has survived both the passage of time and the darkness of the grave.
