Moby Dick: The Rise of the Undead


By Tex Daw & Herman Melville

Beginning with Moby Dick: The Rise of the Undead (Part One), Tex Daw chronicles the passage of two men on board the Pequod, a whaling vessel poised on the edge of a world that is about to change forever.

Haunted by the riddle of the vampire's dance, each of the men is transformed, and the world is made anew. With illuminating intelligence and ravishing sensuality, the author has created a story as beautiful and chilling as a lightning strike at a garden party.

Daw's use of classical and modern English draws us into the story to confront issues within which we might otherwise be uncomfortable. In that sense, his book exercises power over the reader in the way that a vampire will exercise power over his subjects.

Hauntingly unforgettable, and embodied with passion and humour alike, Moby Dick: The Rise of the Undead is a contemporary parable for the age of sailing.
