BAD BLOOD

ByJ D U Geldenhuys

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Bad Blood represents a poetic investigation of the vampire myth, highlighting the symbolic representation of the prime vampiric act of drinking blood in its natural verse context and combining the vampire lore with witchcraft, both white and black, and the wider powers of evil set to the hypnotic rhythms of words. By placing the emphasis on females of the species such as the raven-haired langsuir, the redhaired penangalan and the blonde pontianak, all from Indonesia, Bad Blood blends a potent matrix of wonder and delight to amuse the discerning reader. In short, Bad Blood, with its epic range and theatrical depth, gives a whole new meaning to the gothic genre of the novel in causing it to step from life into the weird wonder world of the twenty-first century.
