Hey Portland SAVE THE DATE! Thurs May 5th! Hollywood Movie Theater! My novel Hunting the Moon Tribe's Crazy awesome book release party! Vegan cake! Classic Kungfu and horror movie trailers on the big screen! Books on sale, signing total geek madness!
At the end of April my novel Hunting the Moon Tribe will be released by Little Otick press. It began life as an award nominated amateur screenplay (Dimension films open door contest, the Nicholl Fellowship), and was reborn as an epic Wuxia Pan (Chinese) Fantasy featuring kung fu crazyness and monster madness.
I have worked on this novel off and on since 1994, So this book means alot to me. I can't wait to share this night with old friends and fellow geeks. I promise this night will be a blast. We'll be showing movie trailers on the big screen that inspired the book. The trailers will be riot, super fun. This is a night you'll remember I promise.

Advance praise for Hunting The Moon Tribe:
"David Agranoff's HUNTING THE MOON TRIBE mashes up Chinese mythology, some seriously unnerving horror, Maoist politics, a sweet coming-of-age story, dark magic, and high-kicking martial arts into a compelling and unusual page-turner. I've never read (or seen) anything like it, and HUNTING THE MOON TRIBE should mark Mr. Agranoff as one of the most original and exciting new voices to emerge in genre fiction in a dragon's age." - Lisa Morton Three time Bram Stoker award winning author of The Castle of Los Angeles and The Cinema of Tsui Hark.
“Remember that old Shaw Brothers / Hammer Studios flick The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires? HUNTING THE MOON TRIBE is what that movie should have been. It is an extremely entertaining epic of kick-ass martial arts and bloody horror. Agranoff not only dazzles us with breathtaking action scenes and vampire violence but also tugs at our heartstrings with realistic family drama and romance. It’s a scary martial arts fantasy that will please just about everyone. David Agranoff is a gifted storyteller.” - Jordan Krall Author of Fistful of Feet and Squid pulp Blues
“As terrifying as Richard Laymon, and just as good, David Agranoff reshapes the vampire mythos in ways never experienced. The horror is visceral, the action brutal, and at its core, there’s a poignancy typically left out of today’s horror. A circus between worlds, vampires, and martial arts aplenty – “Hunting the Moon Tribe” reads like “Brotherhood of the Wolf” encompassed in Chinese folklore and culture. One of the strongest new voices in horror fiction that I’ve read.” - Eric Mays author of Naked Metamorphosis and host of the Authors Speak Podcast
