To all of the Ben and Fran fans who wrote to me saying they couldn't find one or the other of these books—I hope you enjoy this new edition!
AUTHOR'S NOTE
Greetings, readers!
 
I'm sure there are at least a couple of you squinting at the cover of this book and saying to yourself, “Something about this looks familiar. . . .” There
is
something familiar about this book—well, familiar if you happened to read the previous incarnation of it: two slim volumes going by the titles
Got Fangs?
and
Circus of the Darned
, originally published in 2005 and 2006, respectively.
Those two books were intended to be the start of a young-adult paranormal series based on the world created in my adult Dark Ones books, but unfortunately, the fates were against the series going any farther than two books; the young-adult line that was publishing them closed up, and Ben and Fran, the hero and heroine, were left hanging around, waiting for the time to be right for them to make a reappearance.
In November 2010, Benedikt Czerny and Francesca Ghetti will transition into adult fiction with the publication of
In the Company of Vampires
, but since their roots are firmly dug into the young-adult world, I'm pleased that the folks at New American Library will be releasing the two young-adult books in this one handy volume, newly retitled, but containing all the original text from both
Got Fangs?
and
Circus of the Darned
. In addition, I've written a glossary to ensure everyone will be up to speed with all the odd people and ideas contained in the books.
For those of you new to the world of the GothFaire and Dark Ones, welcome! I hope you enjoy acquainting yourselves with the denizens of my Otherworld.

Got Fangs?
CHAPTER ONE

W
hat do you want to do first—have your aura photographed, or see the witch and have her cast a spell?” a girl asked.
You know that creepy kid who saw dead people in
Sixth Sense?
He's Norman P. Normal compared to me.
A guy wearing a backpack answered the girl's question. “I want to see the demonologist. I've had a bad run of luck lately; it could be due to demons. He can tell me if I've been demonized.”
