1st Printing. Signed. 309 pages. Published in 2010. The author's twelfth novel. Christopher Moore at the top of his form. Advance Signed Copy. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions, including copies that are signed on a tipped-in page. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. "Autographed Copy" red sticker pasted in front. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Christopher Moore's "Bite Me". The third and finest installment thus far in the author's "Bloodsucking Fiends" Series, a hilarious parody of the vampire genre that is also genuinely scary. "Darker, scarier, more suspenseful, and as funny as the previous novels. In addition to all of the above, it's genuinely moving. These characters have been my friends for more than a decade now. I've grown to care about them. I was definitely on the edge of my seat for large stretches of the novel. That Moore can maintain this level of tension while being 'spit-milk-out-your-nose' funny is astonishing" (Susan Tunis). An absolute "must-have" title for Christopher Moore collectors. This Autographed Copy is very boldly and beautifully signed in black pen-marker on the title page by Christopher Moore. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page or bookplate, as many copies available online are. This title is now collectible. This is one of very few such signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Please note: Christopher Moore made a few public appearances to launch the book but not a full-fledged national tour. A scarce signed copy thus. One of the most brilliant American writers of our time. A flawless copy. ISBN 0061779725. Bookseller Inventory # 15379
The city of San Francisco is being stalked by a huge shaved vampyre cat named Chet, and only I, Abby Normal, emergency backup mistress of the Greater Bay Area night, and my manga-haired love monkey, Foo Dog, stand between the ravenous monster and a bloody massacre of the general public.
Whoa. And this is a love story? Yup. 'Cept there's no whining. See, while some lovers were born to run, Jody and Tommy were born to bite. Well, reborn, that is, now that they're vampires. Good thing theirs is an undying love, since their Goth Girl Friday, Abby Normal, imprisoned them in a bronze statue.
Abby wants to be a bloodsucking fiend, too, but right now she's really busy with other stuff, like breaking in a pair of red vinyl thigh-high Skankenstein® platform boots and wrangling her Ph.D.-candidate boyfriend, Steve (the love monkey). And then there's that vampire cat Chet, who's getting bigger and smarteróand thirstieróby the minute. Abby thought she and Steve could handle the kitty cat on their own, mais non . . .
Before you can say "OMG! WTF?" Tommy and Jody are sprung from captivity, and join forces with Abby, Steve, the frozen-turkey-bowling Safeway crew, the Emperor of San Francisco and his trusty dogs Lazarus and Bummer, Abby's gay Goth friend Jared, and SF's finest Cavuto and Rivera to hunt big cat and save the city. And that's when the fun really begins.
?Christopher Moore is a very sick man, in the very best sense of the word.?
The undead rise again in Bite Me, the third book in New York Times bestselling author Christopher Moore?s wonderfully twisted vampire saga. Joining his farcical gems Bloodsucking Fiends and You Suck, Moore?s latest in continuing story of young, urban, nosferatu style love, is no Twilight?but rather a tsunami of the irresistible outrageousness that has earned him the appellation, ?Stephen King with a whoopee cushion and a double-espresso imagination? from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and inspired Denver?s Rocky Mountain News to declare him, ?the 21st century?s best satirist.?
