VAMPIRE ALERT

SCHAFFNER PRESS RELEASES TODD GRIMSON’S VAMPIRE CLASSIC “STAINLESS” ON VALENTINES DAY 
Portland, Oregon Author Recently Called “The Greatest Horror Writer You’ve Never Read” by UK’s Guardian Newspaper 

Portland, Ore.  If the thought of another cookie cutter Valentines Day filled with cheap candy and superficial greeting cards leaves you utterly bored and wanting more, then perhaps you may find refuge in what Kirkus Reviews calls, “an erotic confetti shower that leaves you thrilled and unclean.” 

“Stainless” is a darkly romantic vampire novel set in a noir landscape of 1990’s Los Angeles and features a strong female protagonist named Justine.  Unlike the vampires that came before her, Justine does not shun crosses, she watches horror movies on television, and she sets upon her prey in an almost apologetic way, never killing her victims but leaving them unconscious instead.  

She soon finds herself entwined in a very human sexual relationship with Keith, a down-on-his-luck rock guitarist whose hands have recently been mangled by a gang of drug dealers.  Justine nurtures Keith out of his depression and addiction as he in turn becomes her lover and accomplice in her nocturnal predations.  The relationship between the undead and the living is realistically and tragically portrayed as Keith acts both as Justine’s enabler and unwitting nemesis and, in this classic role reversal, ends up having to destroy the one he loves in order to save her.
