This book's got bite. . .

Vampire lit is all the rage now, with many authors trying to capitalize on the success of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series. This parody made me laugh. Nightlight, by The Harvard Lampoon, promises "a hilarious send-up of the teen literature sensation, complete with a klutzy heroine, a sparkly hero, romance, danger, and a vampire prom."
Here's a sample:

He was the most beautiful boy I had ever seen. Yet there was something about him that I couldn't quite name...something curious about the way he poured ketchup on a doll's neck, then furiously licked it off.
Looks like fun. Out in November.
