Publisher's Summary

Peter Stone is a poor, black vampire who is wondering where his nightclub, mansion, and sports car is. Instead, he is working a minimum wage job during the night shift, as being a vampire isn't all that impressive in a world where they've come out to mortals.
Exiled from the rich and powerful undead in New Detroit, he is forced to go back when someone dumps a newly-transformed vampire in the bathroom of his gas station's store. This gets him fangs - deep in a plot of vampire hunters, supernatural revolutionaries, and a millennium-old French knight determined to wipe out the supernatural.
Sometimes, it just doesn't pay to get out of the coffin.

So funny, you'll die!!!

Excellent take on the vampire mythos. Great and enjoyable. The pop culture references alone are worth the listen but the author tells a great story in the meantime. Well crafted, funny, reverent and believable. This is what life would truly be like if Vampires and other supernatural beings were real. The Narrator did an excellent job with the voices and the pace. Great book.

Wow!! This book was hilarious. I have not quite read a vampire story like this one. This is Urban Fantasy meets Robyn Peterman(The fashionably dead series). I look forward to more in this series.. The narrator was fantastic!!!! He really brought these characters to life. Great job!! I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.

I loved this, Wraith Knight was good, but this is so much better.

It's not your typical vampire story. there's calamity galore. The jokes had me laughing my head off while driving and I must have looked hilarious as there were a couple that had me in tears. So many references that just made this story one of my all time favs!

Charles really knows how to do funny! And Cary was the perfect voice for the characters, especially the MC Peter Stone. Great fn all around and I want more of this one too! well just more of this to be honest.

Thank you for sharing this one.

Another Great Phipps Book!

Would you listen to Straight Outta Fangton again? Why?

Definitely. It was hilarious!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Peter was an easy guy to root for so he was definitely my favourite but he was backed by a good cast of fun secondary characters.

Which character – as performed by Cary Hite – was your favourite?

I felt like Hite gave a good performance of all of the major characters. He did have a couple of bad accents for a few very minor characters but on the whole I thought he was excellent. He got the tone of the story right at all times which was important as this was a dark comedy that balanced the hilarious moments and witty banter with some pretty dark moments.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. I liked the characters and the story was definitely engaging.

Any additional comments?

The whole story was a lot of fun. The banter between Peter, David, and Melissa was hilarious and I do love the fact that Phipps packed the story full of fun pop culture references and jokes. The story turned out to be pretty dark as the vamps were definitely not the fluffy Twilight type but the humour and the witty banter helped keep the story from being to bleak.

I think I own all of Phipps books in audio and outside of his Supervillainy Saga books I think this is his most enjoyable world yet. The world is interesting and I loved how a lot of the stuff in the story was a clever analogy for everyday bigotry in modern society.
