Robert R. McCammon's THEY THIRST
No Jacket. Avon Books, USA. Arguably the author's breakthrough novel and an absolutely fabulous vampire epic that an enterprising Hollywood studio should have turned into a blockbuster ages ago. This is a rock-solid, almost fine copy, but there is some edgewear on the otherwise sharp wrappers. Nearly Fine.

THEY THIRST by Robert R. McCammon | Kirkus Reviews
Arlington Hts. My problem is more with his overall plots, not his writing. Same reason I drifted away from King - but, having said that, I am going to try some later King soon. King has 'runs on the board', with me, McCammon hasn't. Like you wrote, Ron, would be damn boring if we all had the same taste, and I love seeing people passionate about authors in 'our' genre, even if I personally don't like them. Nice review. I'm one of those who enjoyed this novel. I read it when it first came out in paperback long ago and remember appreciating it for what it was, a tawdry paperback horror novel on the level of a late night movie.
Sort of like enjoying a pizza, it tastes good while eating it but its nutritional value is limited. Years later I found a copy at a library sale and re-read it. I still liked it. I'm also a big fan of Swan Song which gets my vote over The Stand for "epic" horror. If it's any insight, my favorite King novel is Christine, which may explain my taste in horror novels in general. Still, your criticisms of They Thirst are valid and points regarding its weaknesses are well taken. I like some of his books. The PC crowd would love it.
But it is hard to deny that he was firmly entrenched in the King style, with all its weaknesses. When I read it first at the start of the 80s it was kind of a popcorn movie with vampires.
Which made it fun. Hard to believe, but there were not so many of its kind on the market back then. Like so many of its contemporaries. Couldn't get halfway through. I loved They Thirst when it first came out. Haven't read it since, though. I was in high school when it came out and my family was on our way to Florida for summer vacation, and we stopped at the local convenience store for gas. I went in to check out the comics and paperbacks this was back in the days of those beautiful spinner-racks, god I miss those , and this cover stared out at me I started reading it immediately and was well into it by the time we got to Florida.
It made a big impression on me at the time, especially that weirdo Kobra guy with his broom-handle Mauser. I haven't read any of McCammon's newer stuff. I've picked some up, but he looks like he's veered into more "fantasy" stuff with "series" characters and I haven't much stomach for that. Evil as old as the centuries has descended upon the City of Angelsit comes as a kiss from the terrifying but seductive immortals. Slowly at first, then by the legions, the ravenous undead choke Los Angeles with bloodthirsty determinationand the hordes of monstrous victims steadily mount each night.
High above glitter city a deadly contest begins. In the decaying castle of a long-dead screen idol, the few remaining human survivors prepare to face the Prince of Evil and his satanic disciples. Whilst the very forces of nature are called into play, isolating the city from the rest of the world and leaving it at the mercy of the blood-hungry vultures of the night Afterword by author Get A Copy.
