Lots of info about steamboats in the 1860s. Not really scary. The story seams to repeat itself multiple times.

You can recognize Martin's style in this book. Great story, and characters in a slow paced vampire tale.

Fevre Dream! One of my all time favorites of the vamp genre!

A steamboat full of vampires on the Mississippi in 1857. What‘s not to like?

If you're a fan of The Vampire Chronicles, you'll dig this!

SexyCajun Haven‘t read the vampire Chronicles by I‘ll still give this one a try 1y
trioxin_sematary @SexyCajun Oh definitely, I only said that because it reminded me of the Chronicles while reading it; largely due to the time period. ☺ 1y
SexyCajun Oooo does this book contain anything around the New Orleans area? (My home town⚜️) 1y

So if you put Anne Rice, Mark Twain and Joseph Conrad into a blender and fire it up you get this wonderful novel. A well constructed and original vampire novel this book delivers. You get an amazing feel for life in the riverboat trade in the 1850s and 60s and the tension keeps ramping up with some nice twists. A little slow in places, the great characters make up for it. Highly recommended.

LauraJ Ah, the days before vampires sparkled. 1y
RJHowe @LauraJ I remember them fondly 1y
Literary_Siren I kinda want to read this but I feel so betrayed with ASOIAF. 😔 1y

Time to get butt in gear. Looking forward to seeing GRRM at #thrillerfest next week and figure I should try to read some of his older work to learn more of what he is all about.

Crewgurl If you haven‘t yet, check out his interview on The Great American Read! 1y
esurient I loved GRRM's short story Sandkings best, but his novella series Tuff Voyaging is another favorite of mi e. 1y

Quirkybookworm A lot of people didn‘t care for this book. But I did and still do! I‘m impressed how he tackled a novel which it‘s TOTALLY out of his field. But man, he did so well. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I wouldn‘t mind reading the novel again after 9 years. 1y
RJHowe @Quirkybookworm so far I am really enjoying it. His ability to portray the feel of the period is great. 1y

R is for the double R in George R. R. Martin. What do you do when two writing giants have the opportunity to talk with each other about process and style? You sit down and enjoy the ride! Last year in Albuquerque, NM, Martin and King sat down and had an hour-long conversation. Watch the event; the two writing juggernauts facing-off, posing questions to each other, & giving the world a bit of insight into each of their writing. Video 👇

This book was so good. I didnt realize until it came on sale who the author was. It's not the typical vampire book but yet it has stayed with me 5+ years.

I can't resist acquiring at least a couple new books when I visit a new city. On my recent trip to Quincy, I immediately found an armful of cheap books I wanted, but made myself narrow it down to just these two. Spent under $2 total!

This vampire novel is also partially set in my home state. Martin recently referred to this as his steampunk novel.

A vampire tale set in steamboat era. An enjoyable page-turner, with criticism of Christian morality in antebellum era. Published in 1982, a few of the motifs are now common, even manifesting in mainstream movies such as X-men, however it is done well. While comparisons to Rice's "Interview with the Vampire" are inevitable, the main characters are memorable & there are plenty of surprises to merit reading.

saresmoore Great review! 3y
LeahBergen Nice review. I've often wondered if I would like this one. I'm not much of a fantasy reader and have never read any of his Game of Thrones books (although I love the TV series). 3y
vivastory @LeahBergen This was my first George RR Martin. I love the shows. Fantasy isn't a genre I read much of, but when I heard about the plot, I was immediately intrigued. 3y
manifestsanity Ever read "The Armageddon Rag"? I've always been curious about that one. 3y
vivastory @manifestsanity I've not read it. "Fevre Dream" was my first George RR Martin. I'm also interested in 3y

I was just reminded of this and thought I'd endorse it. Never read any other books by this author (has he written anything else of merit? 😉); I've seen this described as Bram Stoker meets Mark Twain. It's all that and a bag of O-negative! Antebellum vampires on the Mississippi River, with detailed descriptions of their paddle steamer, clothing, meals 😳, and a vampire showdown. It's got it all, and is a perfect read for this haunting season.

Arcana I read this and liked it! Good choice. 👍 3y
