Robot Reviewer is a fan of self-publishing. This book is actually available in used copies, as of the date of this review, for less than $15. The cover here is the cover of the original 1st edition, 1st printing.

Christ takes a philosophical beating in this (unintentionally?) hilariously written treatise which takes, "This is my blood, drink of it" quite literally. Though the characters aren't particularly memorable, their names are, including: Cardinal Vlad, Rap, Digger, Joe the Pimp, et al.

Eccarius' idea is a fun one, and this is not a boring read. It's in that class of "bad" that is entertaining. Anarchist punkers ganging up with vampire hunters to take on the Church, a front for vampire activity or something - the plot was a little all over the place and if you read this book unstoned you're not getting the gist of this review.

We give The Last Days of Christ the Vampire our lowest rating of "Klaatu" on Gort's three level rating scale of "Klaatu nikto barada" because this book is undeniably bad. And a hoot. Caveat: Not for devout Christians. Could maybe be offensive to them or something.
