“This is a novel that takes you through the inferno without flinching, but with deep compassion. It’s a perfect novel for our times, when so many of us see no way to douse the flames of fear, hatred, and despair.”—Nancy Holder

How to control the bloodlust? How to find inner peace as the living dead? The Way of the Wooden Stake.

One man rises in a SoHo alleyway to find his lover dead and his own body terribly transformed… He strains to overcome his murderous instincts through zen meditation and blood deprivation. He is reclaimed by The Ministry, an underground society waging war with the undead.

Again and again he will find his will tested, and his thirst tempted, by the killers who demand his allegiance … and the zen masters who will burn him down at his first missed step…

He must walk a tightrope between the living and the dead ... to master himself and his hunger. And the way of the wooden stake...

The 25th Anniversary Revised Author Edition of LA Times bestselling author Steven-Elliot Altman’s controversial Zen in the art of Slaying Vampires. Foreword by New York Times bestseller Nancy Holder, author of Angel, Smallville, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer novels.

“Altman practices zen philosophy and considered it necessary to combat the darker nature of some of these vampire kids, through a novel that goes out of its way not to glorify the villainy of vampirism.”―Juan Carlos Perez, The Miami Herald
