Welcome to Biting-Edge, a blog shared by authors and vampire experts, Mario Acevedo and Jeanne Stein. We’ll cover urban fantasy, vampires, pop culture, and all things Joss Whedon. Unlike other fantasy blogs, we don’t insist on body cavity searches (unless you ask politely). Snarkiness is most welcome...though we won't promise not to bite back!

Other stuff:

For the week of June 26th, Blood Drive’s release, the book was #6 on the Bookscan Fantasy MMP List. Thanks to all of you who made that happen.

From a Time Magazine article entitled What Would William (as in Shakespeare) Read:

Janet Evanovich’s reply:

My nomination is the Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Season 8 comic books, published by Dark Horse. And I don't feel at all guilty about it.

Joss Whedon, the man, the myth, the legend, writes the comic with the same genius as he did the show. The art, penciled by Georges Jeanty, is as faboo as the writing. The clothes are hip, and the monsters are scary--but not as scary as Buffy's personal life, which is (as it should be) a lot harder to conquer than a demon or a vampire. After all, you can always count on wooden stakes to kill a vampire, but you can't prepare yourself enough for the day your sister turns herself into a giant.

I've read all four installments of The Long Way Home, and I'm cracking my knuckles and pacing in my office waiting for more. Buffy is perfect for those moments when you need a little help convincing yourself you could do a push-up if you really tried.

Amen, Janet.

Something fun: Another YouTube of interest: A guy paid $3,000 to sing “Wild Thing” with the Rock Bottom Remainders during BEA. The money went to charity.

The estate of Ian Fleming has chosen Sebastian Faulk to write the next James Bond novel. The book, Devil May Care, will be published May, 2008.

Harry Potter Countdown—Damn, I can’t believe I haven’t gotten to see the new movie yet! Maybe next week. Like everyone else, I’ve preordered my book and can’t wait to get it! How about those kill joys who are publishing pirated pages as spoilers? They should be sent to the dungeon straight away. I understand lines are already forming at some bookstores for Saturday’s release!

And, as for that work “ginormous”—it’s a new addition to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, simply a combination of “gigantic and enormous.” Among other additions: Bollywood, sudoko, crunk and DVR.

Vicki Pierce-- hope you're having fun on that cruise!
