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

Nibble nibble, drip drip…

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. Two of the stories should be made into full length books, well in my imaginary heaven I guess, one is about a mysterious science loving guy who lives on a fancy little Greek island who knows more about dee

A very mixed collection of vampire tales of all types. From Vlad the Impaler to Lovecraftian monstrosities, all kinds of leeches are represented. Some reference the Cthulhu Mythos, others modern views on vampires. Some are amazing, like "Kiss of the Lamia," with its Middle Eastern tinge, or "Haggopian," somewhere between Lovecraft and Jacques Costeau. Others, like "Back Row" are predictable and banal in their horror, and even the twist had no surprise. (Really, two stories using the "the pretty ...more

"A Covenant of Vampires" é uma série muito boa de excelentes contos de bizarro e sobrenatural, horror puro e à inglesa, com toques muito fortes de Ctuhlluh. A única coisa que me queixo é que o título é altamente enganoso. Não sei que mania é esta de dizerem que vamos ler sobre vampiros, e saem-nos coisas que apesar de chuparem seres humanos (e nem sempre o sangue!), não têm nada a ver com vampiros. No entanto, uma excelente compilação de contos de horror! Este é mais um dos livros que comprei à ...more

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.
