— Kim Newman, author of ANNO DRACULA
"Sherry Gottlieb's strongest point is her bringing out the brilliant
eccentricities of her characters. In Love Bite, there is nothing
like Ms Gottlieb bringing the City of Angels to life in all its
shades of bizarre eccentricities, quirks, and nice/not-so-nice peccadilloes
of its inhabitants."

mystery about vampires in love…WORSE THAN DEATH is the perfect 'great
read' to sprawl out with under a beach umbrella in the broiling
sun or to curl up with in your favorite easy chair in front of a
cozy fireplace on a chilly night."
— Richard A. Lupoff, author of WRITER AT LARGE

vampires are compellingly original, with compellingly human problems.
One wild, fast-paced ride…"
— Jeanne Kalogridis, author of The Diaries of the Family Dracul
"WORSE THAN DEATH spanks right along along with steamy energy
and the author's appropriately wry eye entertainingly reporting
the state of undeath in Southern California. One can hope Jace and
Risha will return in a third novel...."

exciting read. Miss this wonderful novel and you'll be kicking yourself
into the next life."

stew of vampire fiction. Like Laurell K. Hamilton's excellent Anita
Blake series, Gottlieb writes about steamy, erotic power duels between
humans and the undead."

anyone who ever served in the military. If the truth hurts, then
this book carries quite an impact … an important volume."

issues of more than passing interest. Gottlieb's oral history of
draft evasion in the 1960s works on both these counts and is also
surprisingly entertaining and literate."
