AND a shameless last plug: if these reviews haven’t convinced you that Drawing Blood is actually super really an amazing book and thrilling read – I’m not sure what more you need. A cookie? Sorry. Wish we could.

If we have stirred you to action please please buy the book. It’s available from all major online retail outlets and independent bookstores everywhere – like Elliot Bay (who also ships internationally!)

Still one more shameless plug: the above image is an illustration from the book (because hell yes absinthe is an amazing wonderful beverage) and we’ve made it available as a beautiful giclee print in our store. Please check it out along with other images from the book that we’ve made available there.
