About this title

Synopsis:

Can a seven hundred year old Transylvanian find true love with a revolutionary Rysemian fish-woman?
After seven hundred years, glam vampire Sterling O'Blivion worries the joy has gone out of life, until a knock-down brawl with Virginia Woolf in the ladies' room of a Chicago dance studio. But Woolf is really Benaroya, a dolphin-like alien anthropologist here to learn all there is to know about humanity and to fight the good fight against the evil, slave-trading Sajorians. Sterling falls madly in love with Benaroya. It's just the sort of romp an aging vampire needs--but first, to defeat the Sajorians, they have to sell millions of Famous Men's Sperm Kits to every woman on Earth. Intro by Theodore Sturgeon "I liked I, Vampire enough to check it off on the Nebula ballot." --Pamela Sargent 

Review:

"[I, Vampire] is still one of the most astonishing works of science fiction ever written....  a stunning piece of iconoclasm as Scott takes human society to task for its casual cruelties, meaningless obsessions, and ironic hatred of love. Most notably, Sterling's vampirism and lesbian identity work in tandem to make this an early and invaluable work of queer feminist SF; its historic nature alone is worth the price of admission. Introduction by Theodore Sturgeon."    -Publisher's Weekly Reviewed on: 06/27/2016(full review at publishersweekly.com/978-1-61508-620-7)

"Jody Scott sees things with a clear eye. You must read carefully, for she can point a caustic finger with a single throwaway line. And when she really winds up, everything is fair game: big business, the military, politics, religion and more. In addition to sharpness and criticism, there are wackiness, clever dialogue, action and lots of love. I enjoyed this one immensely and recommend it highly." --The Seattle Times 

"Exuberantly clever and wildly iconoclastic... If you thirst for something really witty, quirky, with bags of brains you'll do no better than this wonderful novel." --For Books' Sake

"Scott carries on the tradition of Mark Twain, using outside observers to remark on society. Targets include ... the treatment of women ... consumer culture and the general human willingness to be led by the nose by a charismatic figure. ... ... a message needed now more than ever." Publisher's Weekly 

"Those who seek to deride feminist SF often suggest that it is too serious and po-faced, but Jody Scott's wild imagination, seemingly scattershot but tightly controlled, makes ... an absurdly comic romp of unexpected juxtapositions and witty asides." --SF Mistressworks
