Richard Laymon’s Classic Vampire Novel Back in Print

Richard Laymon is one of my all-time favorite authors. I used to pay hefty shipping rates to get his books from the UK or Australia, as he had become somewhat of a rock star in those countries, especially for people who like hardcore horror. Admittedly, it’s not for everyone, but “Laymonites,” as we’re called, can’t get enough of his novels. His style is amazing. I love how unpredictable his plots are, and his characters are dangerous. The first time I saw Bite in America was inside a mall, and I was thrilled because it signaled that Laymon had found an American publishing house that respected his work. Bite is classic Laymon-style horror, and a departure for him—rarely did he write about vampires. I think you’ll enjoy the ride! —JF
