The Vampire's Tomb Mystery (Digital Download)
Approx. running time: 9 hours 7 minutes.
Read by Sam Burns, with additional voices by Helen Stirling
Funerals; for most of us the trappings of the funeral parlour and the finality of the cemetery commemorates the end, but for an actor like Armand Tesla, who was best remembered for his vampire roles, a funeral is only the beginning. Armand Tesla was to be buried in his vampire costume, but obviously the aged star of stage and screen horror was not yet ready to ring down the final curtain.
No, it would not be nearly so easy to bury such a restless corpse. So be prepared for a case of a body that won't stay put and the tale of a struggling young movie director with more ambition than talent who turns up missing at the vampire's last bow. Indeed, my friends, this will prove to be just the kind of case that only a psychic Hollywood detective like Charles Criswell King, aided by Famous Monster Forrest J Ackerman, can solve. So, gentle reader, be prepared for a tale of creaking doors and empty coffins, of gunshots in the night and damsels in distress, all part of "The Vampire's Tomb Mystery."
“Dwight Kemper's newest novel is a wild ride into the fantasy land of Hollywood's faded star, Armand Tesla, once famous for his vampire films, whose demise sparks an avalanche of missing bodies and murders! Icons like Ed Wood, Tor Johnson, Criswell, Mae West, and other la la land characters meld into a mystery story that always keeps you guessing. Like his previous works, Vampire's Tomb makes the horror legends live again as flesh and blood people, full of quirks, faults, and nasty habits. Recommended!” – Michael Legge, horror host: The Dungeon of Dr Dreck
