Waiting on Wednesday (17): American Vampire

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:
American Vampire Vol. 1 by Scott Snyder, Stephen King, and Rafael Albuquereque.  It is scheduled for release on October 5, 2010.
American Vampire Vol. 1
Product Description
This volume follows two stories: one written by Snyder and one written by King. Snyder's story is set in 1920's LA, we follow Pearl, a young woman who is turned into a vampire and sets out on a path of righteous revenge against the European Vampires who tortured and abused her. This story is paired with King's story, a western about Skinner Sweet, the original American Vampire-- a stronger, faster creature than any vampire ever seen before with rattlesnake fangs and powered by the sun.

  1. If is with Stephen King it should be interesting!

    here is my WoW:

  2. Sounds like both will be highly original vampire stories. I hadn't heard of this one before. Nice pick!

  3. Oh you do find some great books. This looks too good to pass up. Thanks!

  5. Nice pick, sounds a little different than all the other vampire books out there. My WOW is at The Crowded Leaf.

  6. This sounds great! I rarely read vampire novels written by guys (since it seems that women dominate the genre). This sounds to be promising! My WoW is here.

  7. A Stephen King western about a vampire who is powered by the sun?! My curiosity is piqued! Great WoW pick! :)

  8. I am an avid Stephen King fan, so this should be an interesting read!

  9. I saw that as well, it looks good.
