I thoroughly enjoyed this one!! Westerfeld's take on vampirism is that it's caused by a parasite - the protagonist has been 'infected' but only as a carrier, and is part of a secret government organisation in NY devoted to preventing outbreaks from the non-carrier vampires. He has some wondrously funny inventions, such as the effect of vampirism being to cause the new vampire to hate what they previously loved; so the protagonist begins trapping a rogue vampire by putting up Elvis posters near all the entrances to the building. The narrative chapters alternate with chapters describing in great , humorous detail various real parasites and what they do (erk...). This one was enormous fun to read!
Sometimes a photo a day, to make me look more closely and see what is around me to be considered and captured, using the immediacy of digital photography. And possibly the odd rant, from time to time. Things made, found, discovered. A cornucopia. On the One Vivid Leaf blog, crochet!
