Though vampires have taken over the world, it’s not easy being undead in David Sosnowski’s Vamped. For suicidal Martin Kowalski, immortality’s just no fun when you have to warm up manufactured blood in a Mr. Plasma machine each morning. But his mood changes when he runs across a young human orphan. She plunges a knife into his belly and he finds a reason to live again (sort of). This darkly comic tale ventures precariously close to schmaltz (at one point, Kowalski refers to ”the guppy of my heart”), but provides intriguingly offbeat insights into the world of a vamp dad and his mortal daughter: Just imagine a bloodsucker’s particular struggle with his daughter’s first period.
