At once black comedy, horror story and time capsule, THE LESSER DEAD will embed you with a colony of vampires in 1978 Manhattan when the City that Never Sleeps was still a gritty, dangerous place above ground and much, much worse below.

Described by reviewers as “Cormac McCarthy’s Alice in Wonderland,” and “The Phantom Tollbooth mixed with a game of Dungeons & Dragons,” the book is a blend of fantasy, folklore, and tropes from video games. The imaginative and absurdist adventure story centers around a family man who takes a walk into the woods of rural Pennsylvania, finding himself lost with only ‘The Path’ to guide him – a mysterious gauntlet populated by dog-faced men, sentient clouds of smoke, and a caustic talking crab that may be his only chance to getting back to his loved ones.
