Bill is Back.My favourite telecommuting, under achieving, game programmer turned vampire is once again unleasing his unique can of wimp-ass on the vam..Show More »pire establishment. Bill's an anti-literary industry vampire. He's dumpy, he's bespectacled, he's a nerd but he doesn't sparkle. IMHO the strength of the series is the character's interaction. I just love the conversational banter between the characters.
You would have to read The Tome of Bill, Book 2, Bill the Vampire. It's another great story with a Khan. Bill gets to visit the far east and Sally's fun with Bill is just so wicked.
I really enjoyed this audio book and I have already started listening to book 3

This series has become a bit of a guilty pleasure for me. The more I enjoy it, the more I fear my PC quotient is failing. For some reason I find this addictive series 100 proof entertainment; maybe it's because its "juvenile" humour makes me feel young again. The Tomes of Bill is a paranormal parody poking pun at packing, prods, paramores, politics, and peaceniks. Blobs, Bullwinkle, Draculas, environmentalists, french, human friends, nerds, ninjas, Scooby-doo, tree-huggers, vampires, yeti, witches, zombies, no beings are sacred.
The ending cries out for another Doctor Death adventure. This was the best performance yet by narrator Christopher John Fetherolf . He really nailed the "outrrrageous" french accent a la Monty Python. Christopher John Fetherolf has become Free Will Bill's voice and I really hope he continues as the narrator.
