The majority of Brian Lumley's fans know the author for his long-running NECROSCOPE series, but I've not read any of those novels - yet. Instead I love the author for his short stories, and this is another fine collection of his work, all with a vampire theme.

Some are fun and anecdotal. WHAT DARK GOD? tells of cultism on the British Rail network, although rush-hour travellers will already know of the horrors of this particular setting. BACK ROW is a grisly little scene in a cinema, and NECROS bo

I don’t get to read short stories often as I really love long books but this has a few tales that really stood out in my mind, I read this over two months ago and had proper time to digest and after all that time my favorites are still the ones that stand out the most.

Upon starting this book and reading a little bit of the first chapter I didn't know how I would like this book. This book is a book of short stories about monsters not all of which are vampires. But as it turns out the short stories draw you in. Brian Lumley truly has a knack for writing.

A creepy collection of classic ghouls etc from one of my favourite horror authors. Lumley never lets you down.
