                                                   Different blood types
                                                each have a unique flavor.
                                                        I'm a fan of O.

Poetry sucks! William Butten was en route to a new land on the Mayflower when he was turned into a vampire by a fellow passenger, a beautiful woman named Katherine. These pages contain his heartbreaking story - the story of a vampire who has lived through (and perhaps caused) some of America's defining events. As he travels the country and as centuries pass, he searches for his lost love and records his adventures and misadventures using the form of poetry known as haiku.

As Butten documents bloody wars, a certain tea party in Boston, living the high life during the Great Depression, two Woodstock festivals, the corruption of Emily Dickinson, and hanging out with Davy Crockett, he keeps to the classic 5-7-5 syllable structure of haiku. The resulting poems are hilarious, repulsive, oddly romantic, and bizarre.

Read along, and you just may find a new appreciation for - and insight into - various events in American history. And blood.

                                                  Those were not vampires.
                                               If sunlight makes you sparkle,
                                                        you're a unicorn.

About the Author:

Ryan Mecum is the author of the adorably disgusting Horror Haiku series that includes Zombie Haiku, Vampire Haiku, Werewolf Haiku, and Dawn Of Zombie Haiku. He can be found on Twitter at @MecumHaiku. He lives in Cincinnati, OH, and is constantly thinking in a 5-7-5 haiku syllable structure.

Review:

"A classic story is told through the eyes of a newly turned vampire in sweet haiku verse and every passage is as cool as they come... One haiku will make your belly jiggle with laughter, the next will make your skin shiver, and sometimes both occur at once." -- Mark L. Miller, Ain't It Cool News

"One of the best books of 2009. Not only does Mecum follow the traditional pattern of haiku poetry to the syllable (go ahead and count -- they're all there!), but his writing also conveys a very clear, narrative, logical story while adhering to this strict structure." -- Kelly Melcher, Fandomania
