Best things about this cover:
  • Peter was never that good at vampiring. "Less sniffing, more biting," his mother always said. But Peter was different.
  • It's the story of two young lovers, trapped in a magical aging rain that grays your hair but good.
  • It's not just frank. It's absolutely frank. 24-karat frank. 99 44/00% pure frank. The frank standard.


Best things about this back cover:
  • Correction: *utterly* frank. We apologize for any confusion our front cover copy may have caused.
  • Just to be clear: great frankness. OK? OK.
  • This sounds like one long story of fumbling with straps and premature ejaculation.

"She'll get well now, I think. It's been a near thing."
"I'll get the milk pails."

I'm just gonna leave that there.

Sung to the tune of the Monty Python Spam song:

Frank, frank, frank, frank,
frank, frank, frank, frank,
Lovely frank! Wonderful(ly) frank!

Finally, some recognition of my post Martini & Rossi career.
