is a historical novel, set in the grand days of the Mississippi steamboat captains. The experienced but unlucky captain Marsh takes a strange business partner -- Joshua York. York is an intelligent book-reading man who has the unusual habit of sleeping by day.
Anticipates the better-known Rice vampire novels in the idea of a vampire at war with its own nature. Fevre Dream is intelligent and well-written -- well worth reading for both established Martin fans and fans of the vampire novel in general.
