Description

THE HALFLIFE CHRONICLES ARE BACK! Half-vampire Christopher Cséjthe must once again face down the forces of darkness in the return of Wm. Mark Simmon's Halflife Chronicles.

WAKE THE UNDEAD

Years back, a blood transfusion from a member of the undead left Christopher Cséjthe a half- vampire. As founder of After Dark Investigations, he’s gone mano y monster with zombies, werewolves, master vampires, and creatures from the Cthulhu Lagoon—not to mention an immortal Nazi, an ancient Babylonian demon, and a six thousand-year-old necromancer. He’s also saved New Orleans from total destruction once or twice.

A while ago, an enemy ran Chris over with a semitruck while he tried to get a tow. It’s the third time Chris has died. Now waking up in a world he doesn’t quite recognize—the present—he’ll have to use his wits to once again keep the supernatural world at bay. Plus, Chris finds that INTERPOL is interested in some of his associations with Vlad Drakul’s grandson—better known as Dracula—and a trio of witches from a Greek myth want him dead. For good this time. Worst of all, the IRS is looking into his tax returns—and not at all liking what they find. Now that’s really terrifying. 

About A Witch in Time:
“. . . a snappy, snarky, and surprisingly emotional grand finale that blends characters from weird fiction, gothic tales, and mythology into one fun, if crowded, universe. . . .Though the tone is light and comically cynical, Simmons doesn’t downplay the gravity of the history in his tale, making this a tense and gripping story that is sure to please series fans.”—Publishers Weekly

About the Halflife Chronicles:
"[O]ne of those rare novels that combine levity and the supernatural in just the right balance."—Chronicle on Habeas Corpses.
