Unfortunately, Bride isn't as good as the original. Now that his initial danger has passed (and he's living a contented life in many, many pieces), Fox had to come up with a gimmick to bring Jules back. Fat White Vampire Detective would've been a more accurate title.

And though the novelty has worn off a little, Jules is still fun. Doodlebug adds an interesting element (Thin White Vampire Transvestite), as do the creepy Krewe. But this one feels a little forced.

Can House of the Fat White Vampire be far behind? 22 Oct. 2004
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Revisiting the locale and characters that made his first novel, FAT WHITE VAMPIRE BLUES so memorable, Andrew Fox conjures an even more intriguing adventure for his corpulent bloodsucker, Jules Duchon. This time out, Jules is bullied by the vampire elders of New Orleans (known as the "High Krewe of Vlad Tepes") into investigating a series of attacks against their clan, serial dismemberings that have left the unfortunate immortals comatose, sans various appendages. To expose this new evil, Jules must team with long time allies (Doodlebug Richelieu, his transsexual protégé), bitter enemies (Preston, a member of his nemesis' Malice X's posse), and new friends (rat expert and transplanted Californian, Daphne Petruko). Complicating matters, Jules continues to seek a way to resurrect Maureen, his murdered vampiric paramour, even as he pursues his unorthodox investigation.

Fox trods familiar territory in BRIDE; indeed, much of what powered the first novel (mainly Fox's sense of place, and his affection for his cast) drives the second. But in BRIDE, readers find themselves in the hands of a more experienced, more confident storyteller, one who writes with considerably more assurance and panache. Striking a delicate balance between horror, humor, and pathos, Fox takes his fat white vampire on a rollicking, frightening adventure, all the while honoring, updating, and poking sly fun at the hoariest of horror movie and mystery novel clichés. Readers will find themselves alternately laughing and shuddering, sympathizing with even the oddest of motivations Fox provides for his quirky cast. He also expertly toys with his audience's expectations. The author has numerous surprises up his sleeve, and, even if they guess early on whodunit, the "why" behind the perpetrator's deeds will still leave readers shaking their heads.

It's fitting that in a summer blessed by a couple of truly excellent movie sequels (Shrek II and Spider-Man II), Fox turns the same trick with this follow-up to FAT WHITE VAMPIRE BLUES. Based on the quality of this sequel, and on Fox's keen awareness of the traditions of the horror genre, can HOUSE OF THE FAT WHITE VAMPIRE and GHOST OF THE FAT WHITE VAMPIRE be far behind? One hopes so.

Jules is a Jewel! 3 Aug. 2004
By L. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Jules Duchon, the 450 pound vampire who went ratty at the end of "Fat White Vampire Blues," pulls himself together (mostly) for a new set of hilarious adventures in this book. Sherlock Holmes he ain't, but in this novel he does start to resemble Columbo and Clouseau rolled into one.

Will Jules be able to figure out who is mutilating the younger members of the High Krewe? Will he be able to avoid the black vampires who gave him so much trouble in the first book? Will Jules ever find another car he can fit into comfortably? Will Doodlebug be able to help Jules resurrect his lost love, Maureen? Will Jules be reunited with his missing body part in time for the wedding night (if there is one)?

Those questions, and many more, are answered in this multi-layered and highly amusing story. Fox has really outdone himself this time. I hope we'll be seeing more of Jules in the future.

Savory, tasty, yummy and mighty funny 20 Oct. 2004
By KatPanama - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm a nobody but I loved this book and Fox's earlier tome. This one's a mighty tasty outre novel about contemporary vampires in New Orleans. And, thank whatever gods may be, there's nothing Anne Rice about them. Delicious and savory but be warned this is a sequel and you absolutely first must read Fox' Fat White Vampire Blues.

cutting edge horror who-done-it 3 Aug. 2004
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In New Orleans, the High Krewe of Vlad Tepes commands Doodlebug Richelieu to appear before them. They stun him when they show him two comatose female vampires; one without her arms and the other without her legs. The Krewe wants the killer stopped so they order Doodlebug to find vampire Jules Duchon who has the ability to locate and kill the rogue. The only problem is that Doodlebug knows that Jules was transformed at his own request into 187 rats because he wanted to forget that his beloved Maureen was staked.

With the help of his human assistant Daphne and 186 rats, Doodlebug transforms the rodents into Jules minus the sex organs (something had to give). Daphne searches for the head rat while Doodlebug tries to convert the ashes of Maureen back into a vampire. Jules agrees top assist the Krewe in finding a bloodthirsty killer.

The undead of BRIDE OF THE FAT WHITE VAMPIRE have little in common with the typical creature of the night that frequent horror movies and novels as this Krewe is campy and frequently withdraw from blood banks. The mystery is terrific as the vampires lack sleuthing skills and need Jules' expertise. Still this tale belongs to the quarter ton Jules, whose lack of sex organs apparently cost much of his vampiric skills so he bluffs human and bloodsucker alike. Andrew Fox brings cyberpunk to his cutting edge horror who-done-it that will keep readers wondering, laughing, and rooting for Jules who just keeps asking Y.

"Bride of the Fat White Vampire" 24 Sept. 2012
By J. Allison - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought the book "Bride of the Fat White Vampire" because I'd just finished "Fat White Vampire Blues." Together they tell the story of fat vampire hero of the first novel, Jules Duchon and his beloved Maureen who made him a vampire. I'm not going into detail about the two books, others have already done that. What I will say is that these two novels turn the current spate of vampire stories on their collective ear. The young beautiful undead depicted in so many vampire books and movies are not here. The people are not beautiful Glampire types but working class people in the seedier parts of New Orleans where life is hardscrabble and not very pretty. The author, Andrew Fox must have spent some time in an area like this because his descriptions put me right there and his characters were so interesting I actually cared about them. I read a few reviews that said the first book was better than the second but I thought they were both equally good. I give this book five stars and would like to see some further adventures of Jules and Maureen, perhaps a prequal of the time she first made Jules a vampire and his adventures up through the 1940s and '50s. Anyways, if you like vampire novels filled with handsome, tragic, aristocratic characters and swooning beauties, these novels may not be for you.
