5th sentence, 74th page: So I did.
“What annoys me the most about vampires and werewolves is their good P.R.” — Thus begins the tale of a ghoul and his quest for proper respect.
I laughed so damn hard throughout this story. It’s rare to find a story that features a ghoul instead of werewolves and vampires and the sass with which the storyline is delivered were brilliant.
I love that throughout the story, the ghoul bitches and moans about the bad PR that they get. The fact that it ends with him wanting to eat someone doesn’t really improve my opinion of him… but he made quite a few good points. Ghouls don’t waste, vampires do… yet vampires are seen as something romantic and glorious in the literature.
This improvement on PR has certainly made me want to find a story or ten that features the glories of the ghoulish world…
