Drugula by Michael Faun

(pb; 2016: novella)

Review:

Inspired by Electric Wizard's stoner-doom-guitar-sludge songs "Satanic Rites of Drugula" and "Crypt of Drugula", this atmospheric and super-short story follows the titular character as he deals with angry villagers and plans a briefly splatteriffic get-together. There is not a lot of depth, character development or plot, and the opiate-, sex- and weed-suffused tale is a fun, loose, word-spare and fast-moving read, one worth owning if the above description appeals to you.
