Dead Collections by Isaac Fellman

Dead Collections by Isaac Fellman


When archivist Sol meets Elsie, the larger than life widow of a moderately famous television writer who’s come to donate her wife’s papers, there’s an instant spark. But Sol has a secret: he suffers from an illness called vampirism, and hides from the sun by living in his basement office. On their way to falling in love, the two traverse grief, delve into the Internet fandom they once unknowingly shared, and navigate the realities of transphobia and the stigmas of carrying the “vampire disease.”


Then, when strange things start happening at the collection, Sol must embrace even more of the unknown to save himself and his job. Dead Collections is a wry novel full of heart and empathy, that celebrates the journey, the difficulties and joys, in finding love and comfort within our own bodies.




"A moving and provocative novel." - Jordy Rosenberg, author of Confessions of the Fox


"I wish this book was a song so I could crank up the volume and play it on repear. Dead Collections is so raucously funny, sexy, and engrossing." - Calvin Kasulke, author of Several People Are Typing


"Dead Collections is a marvel that left me feeling as if miracles might lurk behind every doorway and inside every old box of papers." - Charlie Jane Anders, author of Victories Greater Than Death
