Publisher's Summary

A Vampire's Lament that's sure to haunt you!

Extended "look inside" sample below.

This poem, although it was written by gay author Edward Petty almost 12 years ago, still captures Halloween's chilling and scary feel, and depicts how some spirits can remain restless.

A Vampire's Lament speaks about how monotonous and mundane it can be trying to sustain a sense of life, even in an not-so-dead state.

Bloodletting for food and survival are two horrors that can eventually wear on even a vampire.

Very quick little read

This is a quick listen and great for this time of year. It is an intriguing poem. I am not always a fan of the pattern of rhyme.

I really enjoyed the delivery of the narrator Jim Morris. His tone and pace kept it from sounding too sing-songy. I would be interested in hear more of his work! Great energy.

Any additional comments?

I liked the added music & sound effects! The audio breathes life into this poem (as with all audiobooks). The narrator has a perfect voice for this poem. I can see it being used on Halloween for parties and trick or treat-rs via speaker as families walk up to a house. I can also see this poem (in audio version) being used in school when poetry is the subject. Well done Edward Petty (author) and Jim Morris (narrator).
