Underwood and Flinch is a three-time Parsec award-winning vampire audiobook saga by Mike Bennett.

“If you think vampire tales are a worn-out genre, Underwood and Flinch will shock and delight you.” Walt Kolenda, Examiner.com

For hundreds of years, the eldest-born male of each generation of the Flinch family has been servant and guardian to the vampire, Lord Underwood.

While the Flinches have changed through the generations, Underwood has remained eternal. David Flinch had hoped to be spared the horror of serving his family's lord and master, but when he is summoned to the Flinch home in Spain by his dying older brother, he knows his luck has run out.

After fifty years of slumber, Underwood is to be resurrected from the grave in a ritual of human sacrifice, and David, by right of succession, is to be his resurrector. But there is another Flinch, one who craves the role of guardian to the vampire: David’s sister, Lydia. It’s a job she means to have, even if it means making David’s the first blood shed in this new age of Underwood and Flinch.

This feed has all of Mike Bennett’s public podcasts in one place: Three seasons of Underwood and Flinch; the thriller, One Among The Sleepless; his short stories; his readings of classic stories, including 18 from H.P. Lovecraft; and his complete and unabridged reading of Bram Stoker's Dracula.

“Bennett’s ‘Underwood and Flinch’ saga is the best hidden literary gem in existence. Experience the same thrill you have when you find an unsigned underground band that blows your mind.”

    The Mike Bennett Podcast June 2023

    I'm back with an update about what’s going on with me, the latest on the possible U&F TV series, and some listener feedback I received regarding the “cut scene” episode from U&F Season 4. It was the one where Ronnie Bishop told David about an old flame called Isobel May, who disappeared after becoming involved with a mysterious (vampire) figure called “Vincent”. So if you’ve unsubscribed from my podcast, resubscribe to get plugged back in. I’ll be posting a new podcast every month from now on.

StarflyHolly ,

Since the beginning………

Ahhhhh Mike! 10+ years listening to Underwood & Flinch! I can hear him right now, as well as the fog horn on the ship during Night Crossing!

Can’t wait to see if a movie or series happens in the future! There’s just not a better vampire 🧛‍♂️ around!

I’ve completed what you’ve written a few months ago, i do believe I’ll give it another go! I do love Night Crossing!

Congratulations Mike! 🎉🧛‍♂️

poor horatio ,

Brilliant!

The writing is great. The story is great. The narration is great. And to think one person is responsible for all 3. What a talent. Thanks from this devoted listener.

OmarMo93 ,

Absolutely epic and captivating - Mike’s readings are incredible.

Mike singlehandedly helped me get into a genre that I never knew I had love for until now. Underwood and Flinch is incredibly epic, and the fact that I can consume this at my own leisure for absolutely free is really awesome. A must-listen.
