Thank you kind sir, will check him out.  I've typed up a book of books over the years flip flopping across the genres and my favorite is the paranormal then mysteries.  I joined an internet book club, rentals and sometimes sales but as my habit is so large they can't keep up with me.  I have to stay with paperbacks, not enough room in the house and use to move every 3 to 4 years so can't do hardbacks.  Oh well miss reading over and over again my favorites, thanks again.  Lindy

Re: Funny Vampire Books

I think arguably the best funny vampire novels come from Andrew Fox: Fat White Vampire Blues and Bride of the Fat White Vampire. Those novels are priceless! My B&N review for Bride of the Fat White Vampire is below, for all those interested...)

From Barnes & Noble

The Barnes & Noble Review
In Bride of the Fat White Vampire, Andrew Fox's sequel to his debut novel, Fat White Vampire Blues - a laugh-out-loud, satirical look at the horror genre - Jules Duchon, a 500-pound, bloodsucking taxi driver, will do anything to bring his dead stripper girlfriend back to life.

Jules's old sidekick Rory "Doodlebug" Richelieu, a transvestite vampire educated by Tibetan monks, has a problem: He has been strong-armed into finding out who is systematically mutilating members of an aristocratic vampire clan in New Orleans; and if he can't solve the mystery posthaste, the patriarch of the family will destroy a meditative institute Doodlebug has worked hard to make successful. Doodlebug turns to his friend Jules for help.

He finds Jules in the form of a swarm of fat white rats feasting on New Orleans cuisine in a back-alley dumpster. After using his mystical powers to transform Jules back into his morbidly obese human form, Doodlebug makes a deal: Jules will investigate the bizarre mutilations if Doodlebug can somehow bring his girlfriend (who is now a pile of ashes) back to life. Add to the mix a looming vampire race war, a satanic rock star, a greedy catfish magnate, and one very important wayward rat, and sidesplitting chaos ensues!

Fans of authors like Anne Rice, Laurell K. Hamilton, Chelsea Quinn Yarbro, and P. N. Elrod will absolutely love this corpulent comedy and its supersized antihero. After reading Bride of the Fat White Vampire, fans of vampiric fiction will never look at gothic romanticism the same way again. In a word: hilarious. Paul Goat Allen

Ok, I'll check out this author also, thanks.  In my long years I've found that women authors are more quirky, devious, cutthroat, and basically  not the "macho duck", "got to save the girl and the world" type mentality especially in the crime/suspense/mystery department but you and others on this forum have me wondering and I will check them out especially the funny type authors.  Need some relief from the job, kiss ass, get serious and then have some fun!!!

Re: Funny Vampire Books

I'd have to add Mario Acevedo.  I can't stop laughing when I read his books.
