The Tindalos Asset by Caitlín R. Kiernan (Tinfoil Dossier #3)
The trademark non-linear narrative of the series is deployed to its least confounding effect yet, as an assassin inexplicably linked to a Hound of Tindalos due to the CIA’s experiments with psychedelics faces off against a Deep One hybrid who worships Mother Hydra. ⭐⭐⭐
My Roommate Is A Vampire by Jenna Levine
I hated this novel. A vampire has been asleep for 100 years and decides that the best way to reintegrate into society is to get a roommate. Instalust, thinly drawn characters with a complete lack of consistent characterization, and an incredibly terribly unbelievable final act. But hey, there’s sequel bait in the epilogue! ⭐
Heartbeat (2023) S01E01-02
I loved this show. A vampire has been asleep for 100 years and is forced to share his house with the descendant of his butler as he attempts to reintegrate into society and fulfill his dream of becoming human. She’s a school nurse, and might be more interested in hooking up with an old university friend than the weird new guy who claims he’s a vampire.
Zombie Ice, Three Floyds Brewing
Double IPA. Tastes like a double IPA (with a lot of Citra hops.)
