Want something fun to read? Do you like reading sarcastic wit? Try Wm. Mark Simmons series with main character Chris Csejthe (pronounced "Chay-tay"). The first book is One foot in the Grave, followed by Dead on my Feet and Habeas Corpses. Simmons does a great job of giving the reader a fun time with how Chris deals with becoming a not-quite vampire. Simmons follows up the trials and tribulations of Chris by including a history and research lesson.
I fell onto this series by purchasing book #3 resently and finding out that it was the third in a series and had to search high and low for book #1. Apparently the local library doesnt really want to loan out vampire books. Thank god for Powels Books as I was able to find book 1 & 2.
