December 1999 marks the 10th anniversary of the overthrow and execution of Rumanian strong man Nicolae Ceausescu-the only Communist dictator to be violently overthrown during the 1989-91 fall of East European Communism. Controversy persists to this day as to whether it was a spontaneous revolution or a coup engineered by his own Securitate (secret police).

I lived in Romania during the last 15 years of communism and yes, the atmosphere pervading the book is awfully close to reality. The dark misery and total fear, the orphans, the total surveillance, they are all true. All telephones in Romania did carry microphones, as did ashtrays in some restaurants. The grotesque behavior of the ruling class - Nicu Ceausescu pissing on the oysters, and many others, are witness accounts described in "Red Horizons: The True Story of Nicolae and Elena Ceausescus' Crimes, Lifestyle, and Corruption", by I.M.Pacepa, from which the author borrows happily, even in terms of actual words said. (Pacepa was the chief of Romanian espionage and defected to the West; his book is available on Amazon as well). All geographical and architectural descriptions are correct too. Vampirism is an elegant explanation that gives totalitarianism a sense of logic. I almost wish it were true, at least things would have made much more sense. I can't stress that enough - except for the actual drinking of blood and the heroes' attempt to kill Ceausescu, the book is almost a documentary one. Overall, I enjoyed reading it, the adventures of Henry and Anya are fun. I only gave it 4 stars because 5 stars should be reserved for the rare masterpieces of literature.

Sipos captures the drab madness of Ceausescu's Romania, combining dark humor with nail-biting suspense as an American screenwriter teams up with a supermodel CIA rouge agent to drive a stake through the heart of the super Stalinist regime - and its diabolical leaders.

From the opening scenes in a gloomy Bucharest populated with vampires who serve the evil regime - and the ghouls and even orphans who grab at whatever human morsels they can, the story moves at near-breakneck speed to a climax so bizarre that the reader is left wanting another hundred pages of this stuff.

Sipos has a deft understanding of his subjects - socialism as vampirism - and Romania under the megalomaniac fist of super-Stalinist Nicolae Ceausescu and his obscene, venom-spitting wife, Elena. Some of the dialogue seems lifted nearly intact from Ion Pacepa's RED HORIZONS - a device that works perfectly in conveying the tragicomedy of those dark days in the 80's prior to the "Revolution" that ended with the bloody execution of the power mad couple.

I read it in a few hours, only wishing the book were longer. Well written and researched, VAMPIRE NATION is a bloody feast for anyone drawn to the horror genre - and a comic delight for anyone interested in the real horrors of life under Communism, especially its mind-boggling version that played out so tragically in Romania. It helps knowing that, eventually, Nic and Elena hit such a bloody and ignomious end - because the Romania Sipos reveals would have otherwise required an invasion by George W. Yet the book isn't dated in the least.

Its funny, scary, romantic, revolting and - yes - thought provoking. Sipos loathes the erstwhile Western approach of cooperation and conciliation with the Iron Curtain countries (Romania retained its Most Favored Nation trading status right up til the end). Like Reagan and others, he was right.

Buy it, draw the drapes, hide under the duvet with a good flashlight - and let this natural tale-spinner pull you into a vortex so real and creepy that you'll need a bath in holy water once the bloody thing reaches its final, dripping climax.

How did I miss this? Probably because it will never be covered in mainstream media. The writing is fabulous, gory, believable. The plot is genuinely frightening--it reminds me of "Pan's Labyrinth"--and comes very close to describing life under tyranny ("the blood will help you remember.")

Once I got into it, I could not put it down. While caught up in the fast-moving plot, which I was reading at 3 in the morning, I noticed similarities between the dogma of Socialism and President Obama's agenda. I wish I wouldn't have seen this, because I voted for Obama--but it is very creepy the way my America is spying on everyday people, and lecturing us that only the government can properly educate children.

All this is yadda-yadda-----just buy the book, because it is the best horror I have read in a while.
