Gil's All Fright Diner
A. Lee Martinez
The co-worker that gave this to me called it "a real hoot" and he was dead on! Ok. Sorry for the pun. Nah..not really.
You know your in for a great ride when the two main characters are introduced as Duke, the Duke of Werewolves, and Earl, the Earl of Vampires. Toss in a greasy all night diner that just happens to be a gateway for "the old gods" (Cthulu anyone?) and a nubile teenager, in possession of Lovecraft's Necronomicon, who wants to rule the world and you kinda have to just sit back and hang on as the story unfolds!
Luckily its short because I couldn't put it down! This book is a highly entertaining read. If your looking to catch your breath before jumping back into the next Robert Jordan, George R. R. Martin, or Steven Erikson, this is your book!
