About a low-brow filmmaker, a horror movie hostess and a reporter trying to get the story. Also a Satanist. And corpses & dried up old actors. So so many entertaining items in one story.

Sequel to John Dies at the End. We’ve got another Armageddon on our hands & two hapless heroes to save us.
Monster: All sorts of fucked up shit.
[If you have any interest in this series I recommend starting at the beginning: Undead and Unwed, the one that started it all. It is the funniest & most absurd series based around all sorts of unnatural beings. I highly recommend.]

A mash-up novel that stars Abraham Lincoln as a vampire hunter. I think that’s all that needs to be said. Watch the movie version of Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter here.
Monsters: Vampire, one bad-ass President
Christopher Moore’s works are a world onto themselves. This one is a third about the vampires. He kicked it off in Bloodsucking Fiends, followed by You Suck. The main characters are Tommy and Jody who at the beginning of the series are turned into vampires & have to figure it out from there. As with all of Moore’s books, the characters are many & varied & pulled from all of his other books. I love that his universe is so intertwined and the hi jinks are never what you’d expect.
