Having been burnt recently by professionally promoted 'fanfiction' by well-known authors, I only jumped into this one because P. N. Elrod is among my favorite authors and I trusted her a little more than I might others.

While I cannot say I "loved" any of the stories, I was right to trust Elrod because I felt that no story in this anthology was disrespectful to what I consider the true spirit of the original "Dracula" and thus I am not disappointed.

Not really any of the tales are quite worth, to

One of the best anthologies I have ever read. I am not really a fan of horror, and my vampire books tend to be the Urban Fantasy type, so it surprised my that I liked this book so much. The stories mostly stay away from the blood and guts stuff, and mostly deal with Dracula the Man as opposed to Dracula the Monster.
Another Elrod anthology. In this one, I teamed up with Amy Gruss, to write a trickster tale about Dracula and a teenaged Alistair Crowley.

This book is an anthology of short stories about (gasp) Dracula in London, and what he might have been doing when not caught up in the action of Bram Stoker's Dracula . The genre of the stories ranges from comedic to creepy, sometimes presenting Dracula as the perfect gentlemen, and other times showing off his more monstrous side. In a few stories, Dracula does not make an appearance at all, but is instead mentioned by the main characters.

Despite not being a fan of short stories, I really enjoy

Not a bad anthology, but I wouldn't read it a second time.

Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books...

1 star... This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.

2 stars... This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author.

3 stars... This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another

I love vampire fiction, and Dracula remains for me one of the most fascinating figures -- both seductive and repulsive. This collection serves up interesting tales about the most (in)famous vampire, sometimes putting him in a sympathetic light and other times depicting him as a beast.

These are all short stories by authors who write novels about vampires. The best vampire authors. They each write a story that is a take on Dracula in London during his times. It's fascinating the different creative takes on him, from he's really a hero to he's really stupid.

This is a nice if somewhat narrow collection of stories about Dracula in London, just as the title promises. The selection is somewhat up-and-down, with particularly enjoyable stories from Tanya Huff, Fred Saberhagen, and Gary Braunbeck.
Oct 17, 2013 Keith rated it really liked it  ·  review of another edition
'Dracula in London' is an interesting series of short stories about "Dracula in 1890's London". Each story is written by a different author. The short stories were good to not so good in their likeability.
This collection includes several stories that tie in with Stoker's novel and do so well. In other words, you can tell the editor and authors have read Dracula more than once.

Recommends it for: Anyone who likes the Dracula books
Good book, but was hard to get into without reading the original Dracula.
I loved the whole premise of the collection.
Interesting. Different. Thought-provoking.
A random pick that turned out good.
