I am a anthology junkie, I have a slew of short story collections, and this one has got to be one of the worse. Sure, there are a few good reads in there, but the issue wasn't just with the stories, but the editor's lack of work.

I try not to bully editors and authors, I don't want to be one of those people. But I have to mention the fact that he seriously dropped the ball on this one.

Here's a bulleted list of lameness:

- Not all of the stories are vampire stories. It's a vampire anthology!

Just bought the book!
Got hooked with the narration in an instant! And that was just a paragraph in the middle of the book!
I dont know if my country just doesnt appreciate vampire stories or if it's bad when i was looking at it cause the price went from P350 to P50 to P30! Haha but based on the reviews here, the book might be nice!

Horror anthologies, especially ones that center on a particular monster like vampires or zombies, often rehash old ideas and wallow in cliches but this book manages to expertly avoid these pitfalls. In light of the current trend of humanizing vampires - as typified by some TV shows and movies - it was refreshing to see these mythic creatures doing horrific things. (And I don't mean breaking people's hearts.) Notable highlights include Gardner Dozois and Jack Dann's "Down Among the Dead", Alice a ...more

This anthology wasn't bad, but there were stories I'd read in earlier books (i.e., "Carmilla" by Le Fanu) and I thought it was interesting how they had H P Lovecraft AND August Derleth in the same volume (August Derleth is an HPL autobiographer and does a lot about the works of Lovecraft). Pretty good, though. (I recommend "Special"....one of the good stories).

nice mix of classics and contemporary (Conan Doyle and R. Lay in the same anthology!)
