It's a hot August morning in 1963. All over the rural town of Grandville - tacked to power poles and trees, taped to store windows - flyers have appeared, announcing the one-night-only performance of The Traveling Vampire Show. The promised highlight of the show is the gorgeous Valeria, the only living vampire in captivity. For three local teenagers, two boys and a girl, this is a show they can't miss, but they find much more than they expected!

    " This book is much different from other Richard Laymon books I have read, lacks the sex and gore typical of his books, and moves at a much slower, suspense-building pace. I absolutely loved it! It is hot, the summer of 1963, and three teenagers, Dwight, Rusty, and Slim, are anxious to see the one-night-only performance of The Traveling Vampire Show, which claims to have the only living vampire in captivity, Valeria, at the legendary Janks Field. As soon as they head out to Janks Field to get a sneak peak at Valeria, bad, mysterious things begin to happen. The entire story spans one long day, with occasional mention of past events to help better understand the three main characters, and ends with a bang. I highly recommend this book. It is one of my favorite Laymon reads to date, but if you prefer typical Laymon, you may not enjoy this one as much. "

    " Laymon's descriptive language is good in this book, however I'm not sure if it's successful as horror fiction as I don't find much horror in it. "

    " Richard Laymon is probably better than any other author I've read at generating real suspense and horror, and while this wasn't quite as much of a nail-biter as some of his other books which I've read, it still manages to be suitably alarming. The weaknesses of the book are common to his other material: all too often characters behave in ways that make no sense apart from their ability to drive the story forward, and all of his male characters have a rather disturbingly intense focus on sex that becomes prurient and tiresome. "

    " Wow. Talk about a wild story. It starts out a little like Stand by Me.. and then goes terribly wrong. Absolutely hilarious and wild. Combine this writing with Anita Blake series and you would have a story that would make you prefer only vampire stories. Alas not in this lifetime but this book is one to pick up.. just might be a bit much for younger readers though. =) "
