Book of the Week: The Traveling Vampire Show by Richard Laymon

The late, great Richard Laymon published some real humdingers in his time and this one is one of my favorites. The Traveling Vampire Show is one of those books that make you think back to when you were young and the world was full of wonders. In a small town, flyers begin appearing describing an adults only show featuring Valeria, the worlds only captive vampire. Well this is right up Dwight, Slim and Rusty's alley, being adventurous 16 year olds in 1963. They find a way to check out the show and all hell breaks loose. Full of action, sexual situations and violence (as if Laymon writes any other way!) this book is a quick, fun read. This is a show I recommend you check out. It gets **** out of *****.
