A THRILLING REINVENTION OF THE VAMPIRE NOVEL BY THE MASTER OF MODERN FANTASY, GEORGE R. R. MARTIN
Abner Marsh, a struggling riverboat captain, suspects that something's amiss when he is approached by a wealthy aristocrat with a lucrative offer. The hauntingly pale, steely-eyed Joshua York doesn't care that the icy winter of 1857 has wiped out all but one of Marsh's dilapidated fleet; nor does he care that he won't earn back his investment in a decade. York's reasons for traversing the powerful Mississippi are to be none of Marsh's concern--no matter how bizarre, arbitrary, or capricious York's actions may prove. Not until the maiden voyage of "Fevre Dream "does Marsh realize that he has joined a mission both more sinister, and perhaps more noble, than his most fantastic nightmare--and humankind's most impossible dream.
"A novel that will delight fans of both Stephen King and Mark Twain . . . darkly romantic, chilling and rousing by turns . . . a thundering success."--Roger Zelazny
"An adventure into the heart of darkness that transcends even the most inventive vampire novels . . . "Fevre Dream" runs red with original, high adventure."--"Los Angeles Herald Examiner"
"Stands alongside Anne Rice's "Interview with the Vampire" as a revolutionary work."--"Rocky Mountain News"
"Engaging and meaningful."--"The""Washington Post Book World"
