Huston has taken the basics of the vampire mythos and produced a very well crafted tale . . . [His] telling of the tale through the world-weary eyes of a vampire is what sets the book apart. It’s a great read and drags you kicking and screaming through the action . . . There are blood and guts and action and violence and even some pondering on the nature of life and love. I really enjoyed Already Dead and it’s well worth seeking out.
The second Joe Pitt novel, No Dominion, is also out now — and a third, entitled Half the Blood of Brooklyn, will be published by Orbit UK in early 2008.
