Gil’s All Fright Diner by A. Lee Martinez
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A. Lee Martinez’s most widely-known book, and, arguably, one of his funniest.
This is a typical buddy story about a redneck werewolf and a geeky vampire oddcouple, Duke and Earl, who — in search of beer and pie in rural Texas — accidentally save the world from a giant Cthuloid horror.
Wait… Okay, so that’s not typical at all. But it’s a blast. Some of the best parts of this book are when Earl, the vampire, is falling in love with a ghost. You really feel for the poor sap.
The story is hilarious and comes highly recommended. Go buy it now!
