Warrior Babe of the Outland

The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove, by Christopher Moore – This return to Pine Cove, the California town that served as the setting for Practical Demonkeeping, features a few of the same characters, but mostly new ones. A psychiatrist, a socially awkward biologist, a blues musician, a crooked sheriff, a seemingly lazy pothead constable, a pharmacist with a sea creature fetish, and a former B-movie actress all have roles to play. The plot involves a giant sea monster that makes people horny as part of how it attracts its prey. I didn’t find this one quite as funny as the other Moore books I’ve read, but it’s a solid story with an amusing premise and characters I came to like. I even got to feel for the monster, despite its eating people.
