Here's the cover of the 1991 Orbit Books mass-market I have (322 pages). Not really a big fan of the overly-gaudy artwork here, but the premise of an armed-to-the-teeth 'Nam vet on a search-and-destroy mission against vicious vampires in America's heartland is fine by me.
-------------------------------------
Take Salem's Lot, add some John Rambo, and what you get is this. In other words, pure heaven. If there's such a genre as action-horror, than this is the novel against which all others should be judged, as it's pretty much non-stop vampire mayhem once it gets going. Only this time the potential victims aren't easy dinner, cuz badass trenchcoat-wearing Vietnam vet Chris Stiles has come to the small town of Isherwood, Indiana with the sole purpose of kicking vampire ass. See, his brother was killed by some undead beast (possibly a vampire, possibly not) back in the day, and now his ghost haunts Stiles, constantly badgering him to find and destroy whatever it was that killed him so that he may finally rest in peace and not be stuck in purgatory or wherever. So he directs Chris to various towns where he senses unnatural evil, and this time he's sent him to Isherwood, population 800-something. Chris hopes this will be the final time he has to do this.

Turns out some kids in town, while investigating the creepy local "haunted" house on a dare, have unwittingly set loose an old vampire that had been buried in the wall for decades. And it's not very long at all before the residents of Isherwood start getting murdered and/or join the quickly growing vampire horde. Good thing Stiles brought the heavy artillery for this job, and with the help of some local kids, their hot mom (Stiles' potential love interest), and the local sheriff, he sets out to contain the threat, then blast it to hell.

This was definitely a fun read, though it did run a bit long for my tastes. But just a bit. There's only so much machine-gunning, katana-wielding, pipe bomb-throwing, decapitation, and cars running over vampires' faces I can handle before it starts to wear a little thin. I mostly read horror for the atmosphere, the mystery, and the fear of the unknown. There's a little of that stuff here, but what kept me reading was the pure carnage, which I'm usually down for as well. The characters are relatively well-drawn for a novel of this ilk, well enough for me to stay invested in whether they lived or died/got vampirized.

T. Chris Martindale wrote three other novels in the early 90s, all of which I've read already, but only Demon Dance had the same balls-out craziness vibe that this one did, just in the old west with lots of Shaman magic and undead buffaloes, while the other two are more of your typical slow-building horror. All are surprisingly well-written for early 90s midlist horror titles, but Where the Chill Waits is the must-read out of those (top-notch Wendigo in the woods horror).

As for this one, any fan of the trashier side of horror would do well to check this one out, though it's not nearly as trashy as the Orbit cover would have you believe. You might even learn a thing or two about the different ways of ridding your town of vampires, which could come in handy one day.

*As a side note, I was very happy to have run into a pristine copy of the Warner mass-market over the weekend, as the cover is slightly less embarrassing to be seen with in public. Too bad I was already done with the novel, so I wasn't saved from all the queer looks I got while at the eye doctor's last Monday.

turns out some kids in town, while investigating the creepy local "haunted" house on a dare, have unwittingly set loose an old vampire that had been buried in the wall for decades. and it's not very long at all before the residents of isherwood start getting murdered and/or join the quickly growing vampire horde. good thing stiles brought the heavy artillery for this job, and with the help of some local kids, their hot mom (stiles' potential love interest), and the local sheriff, he sets out to contain the threat, then blast it to hell.

this was definitely a fun read, though it did run a bit long for my tastes. but just a bit. there's only so much machine-gunning, katana-wielding, pipe bomb-throwing, decapitation, and cars running over vampires' faces i can handle before it starts to wear a little thin. i mostly read horror for the atmosphere, the mystery, and the fear of the unknown. there's a little of that stuff here, but what kept me reading was the pure carnage, which i'm usually down for as well. the characters are relatively well-drawn for a novel of this ilk, well enough for me to stay invested in whether they lived or died/got vampirized.

t. chris martindale wrote three other novels in the early 90s, all of which i've read already, but only demon dance had the same balls-out craziness vibe that this one did, just in the old west with lots of shaman magic and undead buffaloes, while the other two are more of your typical slow-building horror. all are surprisingly well-written for early 90s midlist horror titles, but where the chill waits is the must-read out of those (top-notch wendigo in the woods horror).

as for this one, any fan of the trashier side of horror would do well to check this one out, though it's not nearly as trashy as the orbit cover would have you believe. you might even learn a thing or two about the different ways of ridding your town of vampires, which could come in handy one day.

description
here's the cover of the 1991 orbit books mass-market i have (322 pages). not really a big fan of the overly-gaudy artwork here, but the premise of an armed-to-the-teeth 'nam vet on a search-and-destroy mission against vicious vampires in america's heartland is fine by me.

take salem's lot, add some john rambo, and what you get is this. in other words, pure heaven. if there's such a genre as action-horror, than this is the novel against which all others should be judged, as it's pretty much non-stop vampire mayhem once it gets going. only this time the potential victims aren't easy dinner, cuz badass trenchcoat-wearing vietnam vet chris stiles has come to the small town of isherwood, indiana with the sole purpose of kicking vampire ass. see, his brother was killed by some undead beast (possibly a vampire, possibly not) back in the day, and now his ghost haunts stiles, constantly badgering him to find and destroy whatever it was that killed him so that he may finally rest in peace and not be stuck in purgatory or wherever. so he directs chris to various towns where he senses unnatural evil, and this time he's sent him to isherwood, population 800-something. chris hopes this will be the final time he has to do this.
