Zombie Spaceship Wasteland:

Zombie Spaceship Wasteland By: Patton Oswalt
Non-Fiction: Essay, Humor, Memoir  262 pages
Book Count: 7

This is the strange mixture of writings that you would expect from a comedian like Patton Oswalt:  part essays, part memoir, part intentionally bad screenplays and part epic poem in ode to a D & D character. All of it entertaining.

Jack Bentley is an over 300 year old vampire who works retail.  If centuries of angry customers wasn't enough, he made a deal with the devil to escape a vampire hunt and now it's his time to pay.  His new job is at the offices of Hell.  Which are almost as bad as the office in "Office Space" (he at least doesn't have to come in over the weekend.)  But, even in Hell vampires are second class citizens.  And his only way to escape an eternity of tiny apartments and buses that smell is getting the demon who brought him in to let him live with him.
