Robert Weinberg Presents
Sunglasses After Dark Audiobook
by Nancy A. Collins
Read by Melodee M. Spevack
 
 
Sunglasses After Dark, by award-winning author Nancy A. Collins, tells the story of Sonja Blue, a punk female vampire searching for the man who made her one of the undead, and her battle to overcome her very real inner demon in time to rescue an innocent man from the clutches of an unholy faith healer.
 
While in London, American heiress Denise Thorne disappears from a nightclub, never to be seen again. On that very same night Sonja Blue, a tough-as-nails vampire hunter-slayer, conceived in terror and born of blood, rises from the city's gutters. Saved by modern medicine before she completed her transformation into one of the undead, she becomes a living vampire, determined to fight for what remains of her humanity.
 
Sonja Blue travels the globe, hunting down and disposing of the shadowy creatures that prey on the innocent while searching for the vampire who created her. But as dangerous as hunting vampires may be, it's nothing compared to the threat posed by The Other, the demonic personality Sonja is locked in constant battle with for control of their shared body.
 
Acknowledged as one of the first Urban Fantasy novels, Sunglasses After Dark has garnered wide-spread critical praise and won the Horror Writers Association's coveted Bram Stoker Award, as well as the British Fantasy Society's Icarus Award.
 
Out of print for several years, the Radio Archives edition of Sunglasses After Dark uses the new edition of this novel, which has been extensively revised and edited by the author. It is considered to be the preferred text.
 
 

Robert Weinberg, Series Editor, in fifth grade read The Devil and Daniel Webster, by Stephen Vincent Benet, and knew beyond any shadow of a doubt that he wanted to become a writer. It’s a dream he’s followed since. During the past 57 years, Bob has written and sold nearly 150 short stories, 19 novels, 18 non-fiction books and more than two dozen comic book scripts. He’s edited more than 200 anthologies and short story collections. Bob’s work has been published in 20 countries and 15 languages.
 
He’s won 2 Bram Stoker Awards, for writing and editing, given by the Horror Writers Association; 2 World Fantasy Awards; and 2 Society of Technical Writers Awards for his non-fiction science books. He served 2 terms as Vice President of the Horror Writers Association. He’s the only person in the history of the organization to win the group’s Silver Hammer Award for service to the association 2 times. Bob also was on the Board of Trustees for the World Fantasy Convention for 24 years. In 2005, Bob was Guest-of-Honor at Robert E. Howard Days held in Cross, Plains, Texas. Later that same year, was Guest-of-Honor at the World Fantasy Convention held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In 1983, Bob was given a Lamont Lifetime Achievement Award, presented by the Directors of PULPcon, the convention for pulp magazine enthusiasts. The Horror Writers Association awarded Bob a Bram Stoker Lifetime Achievement Award in 2010. In 2012, he was present a special award by the World Science Fiction Convention for his contributions to the Science Fiction field. Bob is probably the only horror writer who has ever served as Grand Marshall of a Rodeo parade. Despite all his success, Bob Weinberg is not yet ready to retire. He’s still looking to write the perfect story. He’s intent on composing a story that resonates with his readers the way The Devil and Daniel Webster did with him. It’s a goal he may never achieve, but he intends to keep trying.

Melodee M. Spevack is a Brooklyn-raised, British-trained actress whose roots in classical theatre have expanded to lead her down some unexpected paths. One of her first roles in Los Angeles was on stage in The Adventures of Conan at Universal as the warrior "Red Sonja" and she was part of the original pro cheerleading squad for the NY Cosmos, neither of which were anticipated in her Shakespearean training. As an on-camera performer her credits include The Division, Princess Diaries 2, Invasion, What Should You Do?, The Mask, Spellbinder, Freddy's Nightmares, The Man Show, Dynasty, Silk Stalkings, The Jeffersons and NBC’s The Secret World of Dreams.

Melodee's voice work has led her from anime (Fist of the North Star, Digimon, .Hack, Cowboy Bebop, Monster and Robotech among others) to games World of Warcraft, Two Star Trek Titles, Lost Odyssey, Mech Warrior, etc.) to films and TV. She voice doubled Sigourney Weaver in Alien: Resurrection, Laura Dern in We Don't Live Here Anymore, had a few of her demons exorcised in The Rite and has been heard in Starship Troopers, Hercules / Xena, Star Trek: Enterprise, John Carpenter’s Vampires and the Mortal Kombat series. 
 
Melodee has always been a fan of the fantasy genre and is delighted that her journey has led her from Red Sonja to Sonja Blue.

"Twilight"? NAH! THIS is the real deal! November 13, 2014
Reviewer: Marilyn Assenheim from Middlesex, NJ United States  
WOW! Something completely different . The story was wonderful although there were a few rough edges. This is a very violent story: the action is fast, hard-hitting and merciless.  This is not another "slasher" piece. The horror proceeds inexorably.

I attribute much of the credit to Melodee Spevack. I listen to a lot of audio books.  Ms. Spevack was wonderful. The depth and richness of her voice, the humor she infuses pull the listener along...sometimes against one's will. The book isn't read by the narrator; it's performed, with skill and imagination. She disappears and the listener is left alone, in the story...in the dark...

It is difficult to praise a book without giving anything away. This book is a must-hear if you crave a good horror story! You will find yourself reaching, however reluctantly, for the next in the series.
