1 – Perishables - Winner of the 2012 Laine Cunningham Novel Award!
Everybody hates their Homeowner’s Association, and nobody likes a zombie apocalypse. Put the two together, and Withrow Surrett is having a truly craptastic night. Not to mention the fact that he’s got one big secret to keep from the idiots in his home – Withrow is a vampire.
Perishables is a bust-your-gut funny collection of three stories about trust, human and undead relationships, what community really means, and zombies.
A LOT of freakin’ zombies.
2 - Tooth & Nail - Withrow Surrett, the most sarcastic vampire for a country mile, makes an annual Appalachian pilgrimage to keep tabs on nocturnal colleagues and his last living friend from mortal days. What should be a quiet week among familiar faces quickly fills with undead rednecks, folk magic, murder, a rookie detective and Withrow's own psychotic cousin who insists on trying to help. Because everybody’s got THAT cousin, even a vampire.
As he chases the phantoms of conspiracy and paranoia across moonlit forests, abandoned factories, shadowy back roads and seedy bars - all the quiet little places humans fear to tread - Withrow also struggles with who he wants to be. Can a monster find a place among family and friends?
3 - Deal with the Devil - Durham, North Carolina has industry, commerce, a university education, a heck of a basketball team, a snarky vampire, technopagans, and a masked vigilante…Wait, what?!?
Withrow deals with a rookie superheroine, an extra vampire, friggin’ teenagers, and technopagan witches, all while trying to figure out his place in the world. And kick some ass. A LOT of ass.
4 - Attempted Immortality - Withrow Surrett, cantankerous vampire lord of North Carolina, is passing the long winter nights of the off-season in the sleepy resort town of Sunset Beach. Because where else would a vampire go but the beach? This is no vacation for Withrow and his cousin Roderick, though. They’re hunting down a nest of nasty elder vampires who want to take over the world!
But of course it’s not that simple, because for Withrow, nothing ever is. Withrow and Roderick - and their team of friends old and new - soon learn there are stranger things afoot than vampires' machinations among the dunes of Sunset Beach: mysterious mortals, twisted sorceries, and fleeting apparitions. Through sabotage, espionage, and bare-knuckled brutality Withrow must find and stop the elder vampires before they play the ace up their sleeve!
5 - Nobody Gets Out Alive - Withrow, Roderick, the Technopagans, the Book People, and all the rest of Withrow’s friends, allies, and accomplices are back again to bring the fight to their enemies – and to finish it once and for all!
The elder vampires have issued their challenge and Withrow has taken them up on it. Now he and the rest of the gang have teamed up to go to where they’ve always known they shouldn’t go: the stronghold of the elders, a gated community on the outskirts of Charlotte, North Carolina. Tucked away behind the high walls and locked gates of their unholy fortress, the elders stand ready to spring their villainy on the unsuspecting modern age and only Withrow stands in their way. Join the fight alongside these unlikely heroes as they risk life, limb, souls, and sanity itself in a no-holds-barred free-for-all against the monsters who stand ready to re-enslave the world!
