Just as Go-Go Girls of the Apocalypse was a "raucous thrill ride" (Publishers Weekly) and a playful stab at the post-apocalypse story, Vampire a Go-Go is a satirical take on the modern horror story--providing more laughs and unforgettable characters.

Victor Gischler is a master of the class-act literary spoof--a unique niche in which he has few equals. He has tackled many popular genres with his wry wit: crime noir, the post-apocalyptic subgenre, and now the horror novel genre. Frequently compared to Kurt Vonnegut, Thomas Pynchon, and Quentin Tarantino, Gischler turns his attention to castles, astrologers, alchemists, ghosts, witches, gun-toting Jesuit priests, and werewolves with Vampire a Go-Go, a hilarious romp of spooky, gothic entertainment. Allen is a hapless grad student in trouble. He's about to flunk out of school and there is not much that can be done to salvage his GPA--except to redeem himself by accompanying an eccentric professor and his enigmatic wife on a research trip to a castle in Prague. But Allen doesn't know he'll end up in a hunt for a supernatural device that can restore the humanity to the undead. Narrated by a ghost whose spirit is chained to the mysterious castle, Vampire a Go-Go is full of twists and surprises that will have readers screaming--and laughing--for more.

Amusing romp through Prague with battle tested Jesuits, werewolf, vampire, ghosts, witches, warlocks and zombies. A quick and funny read for those with a little bit warped sense of humour.
