Pg. 69: Suzy McKee Charnas' "The Vampire Tapestry"

The current feature at the Page 69 Test: The Vampire Tapestry by Suzy McKee Charnas.

About the book, from the publisher:
Edward Weyland is far from your average vampire: not only is he a respected anthropology professor but his condition is biological — rather than supernatural. He lives discrete lifetimes bounded by decades of hibernation and steals blood from labs rather than committing murder. Weyland is a monster who must form an uneasy empathy with his prey in order to survive, and The Vampire Tapestry is a story wholly unlike any you've heard before.
