DISTURB NOT MY SLUMBERING FAIR

Diedre, the teeny-bopper ghoul introduced in Disturb Not My Slumbering Fair, really pleases me in a strange way. Originally published in 1979, all I could think was ... why not a teeny-bopper ghoul? Ghosts come in all shapes, sizes, ages, and dispositions. Demons and other possessive spirits are as apt to pick a kid as a grandmother for their uses. Richard Lupoff did a wonderful novel about a teen-age werewolf that's just delightful. The book is called Lisa Kane and so is the werewolf.

I have a certain sneaky sympathy for various supposedly supernatural beings. By the time this collection was available, St. Martin's Press and Signet Books published my novel Hotel Transylvania, which develops along similar lines.

One writer friend of mine hated this story. I find it mildly amusing. Whatever your reactions, I hope you're entertained.
