Synopsis: On a hot August morning in 1963, the rural town of Grandville is covered with fliers announcing the coming of something extraordinary - a one-night-only performance of The Travelling Vampire Show, featuring Valeria, the only known vampire in captivity. For three local teenagers, it's a show they don't want to miss. The trouble is, the show starts at midnight and they're supposed to be home by then. And in any case, Janks Field, where the show will take place, has been declared off-limits because of its own sinister history. But they can't just sit at home and let Valeria do her thing without them, can they?

About the Author: Richard Laymon has an MA in English Literature from Loyola University, LA. After a variety of jobs, he now works full-time as a writer and lives with his wife and daughter.

Book Description Cemetery Dance Publications. Hardcover. Book Condition: As New. Dust Jacket Condition: As New. Clark, Alan M. (illustrator). Hard Cover. As New/As New. Private Press. Abingdon, MA; CD Publications. Though gloomy with clouds, it is a hot, August morning in the summer of 1963. All over the rural town of Grandville, tacked to power poles and trees, taped to store windows, blowing along the sidewalks, fliers have appeared announcing the mysterious one-night-only performance of The Traveling Vampire Show. The show will feature Valeria, the only known vampire in captivity. According to the fliers, she is a gorgeous, stunning beauty. In the course of the performance, she will stalk volunteers from the audience, sink her teeth into their necks and drink their blood! For three local teenagers who see the fliers, this is a show they don't want to miss. But they may have to. Though they can probably scrape up the price of admission, other obstacles stand in the way. One problem, nobody under 18 years of age is allowed into the show. Dwight, Rusty, and Slim are only 16. Another problem, the show begins at midnight and the three teens always have to be home by then. If that weren't bad enough, the show is to take place at Janks Field -- a desolate patch of ground with a nasty history -- that has been declared off limits by their parents. The situation appears hopeless. Though Dwight and his friends fear they won't be able to attend the actual performance of the Traveling Vampire Show, they do have the entire day to themselves. Why not hike out to Janks Field and take a look around? With any luck, they might be able to watch the crew make preparations for tonight's performance. If they're really lucky, maybe they'll get a peek at Valeria, the gorgeous vampire. And so the three friends set off on foot for Janks Field. Dwight is a solid, honest kid, long on common sense and loyalty to his friends. He always tries to do what's right. Rusty is a husky guy who relishes trouble. Slim, their long-time pal, is the brains of the outfit, a voracious reader of novels, an aspiring writer, and a girl. Also, she is sometimes too brave for her own good. The Traveling Vampire Show is the tale, told in Dwight's own words, of what happened to him, Rusty and Slim on that hot summer day they hiked to Janks Field. It's the story of their friendship and love, their temptations, their betrayals, and their courage as they went where they shouldn't go, did what they shouldn't do. and ran into big trouble. 2nd edition of the CD Publication of this Laymon novel that garnered rave reviews for its Bradburyish evocation of 60's coming-of-age theme amid a horror setting & won the Stoker Award for Best Novel. Great Alan Clark cover. Fine in fine dj. Bookseller Inventory # 000165
