When archivist Sol meets Elsie, the larger than life widow of a moderately famous television writer who's come to donate her wife's papers, there's an instant spark. But Sol has a secret: he suffers from an illness called vampirism, and hides from the sun by living in his basement office. On their way to falling in love, the two traverse grief, delve into the Internet fandom they once unknowingly shared, and navigate the realities of transphobia and the stigmas of carrying the "vampire disease." Then, when strange things start happening at the collection, Sol must embrace even more of the unknown to save himself and his job.… (mais)

I wasn't at all sure I was going to like this, but by about a third of the way through I realized that I really, really cared about these characters. Quotable, smart, messy, all over the place, but in like a tight neat well packaged way (I am a sucker for that kind of story). There are a lot of thoughts I want to return to here.

A few reviews bring up that it doesn't make sense to have both the metaphor (vampires) and the things it's representing (death, disability, transness---less so Jewishness, I agree that wasn't as well incorporated) in the same story, but I would argue that they're not metaphors, they're riffing on each other. What Fellman is trying to get at are instead the things that are common to all of them (and ultimately all of us human beings) in different ways and at different moments: contagion, rot, fear/disgust/desire, limitation, anxiety and coping with risk, legacy.

Spooky trans vampire archivist queer romance mystery written by a trans archivist! With niche archives references! Probably not for everyone but definitely exactly for this trans archivist :D ( )

Really struggling to not give this two stars. Like others have said, some of this is just beautiful. And like others, I should have LOVED this: I am an archivist, I have a history of being trans, and I am obsessed with the Anne Rice vampires…

Here’s what I loved: The nuance of transgender and lesbian identities, the wisdom that obviously comes from actually *living* in queer spaces away from the internet, and the sex scenes (the best part of the whole thing imo). The author should write some erotica, not joking. Also, the discussion about gay women writing gay men was brilliant!!! “Reading slash is a drug.” Just brilliant. Writing women as a woman is scary, but it is just so much heartier.

Here’s what I found meh: AO3 inclusion, fandoms in general, sci-fi, the decaying archive metaphor, the vampire metaphor, and the jewish inclusion were all underdeveloped. Perhaps a bit more passé was the baby-trans (modern online) obsession with labels and identity and… meh. I get it, it’s super personal for the author, but I am exhausted.

Here’s what I hated: Elsie’s trans identity was so tenuous!!!It reminded me so much of my conception of my masculinity while I identified as trans/man that I can’t see her doing anything but detransitioning in a few years. She basically has a textbook detrans story I hear time and time again so…

Anyways, this was spoon-fed to me by my archives master program cohort so I had to try it. Meh? ( )

This read was strange and lovely. I haven't read much fiction that successfully describes fandom in such a critical yet understanding way. Also, I always enjoy a new take on vampirism. ( )

Should be read by all archivists, vampires, and transmasculinish non-binary ppl. Fan fiction writers too. A fun little romp. I guess I would probably have liked it more without the vampires. Made it seem kind of silly to me. ( )

" Fellman thoughtfully examines gender, sexuality, and belonging through an unforgettable main character, who explores what it means to truly embody himself. This bold and self-aware story delivers the goods."
