I picked this anthology of short horror stories up on mostly a whim. Vampire stories by Karl Edward Wagner and Kathe Koja were enough to entice me. Like most anthology collections, it’s a mixed bag. Some of these authors are able to deliver in the short story format, others are not, are frustratingly vague, like a half-remembered dream.

What makes this vampire anthology different, though, is that the stories all push vampirism to its limits, trying to see how far you can push the vampire mytholog

I've read the first three stories so far. Good stuff. I particularly enjoyed the first story, Carrion Comfort. A little research revealed that it had been extended into a novel that many readers thought was overlong. Hmmmmm. As with most short story anthologies, I'll be reading it over a long time frame- coming back to it between books, etc.
An excellent collection which includes the story "The Ragthorn," by Robert Holdstock and Garry Kilworth, as well as stories by Thomas Ligotti, Kathe Koja, and David J. Schow.
Some stories were good, some not as good. The one that freaked me out, for some reason, was "The Ragthorn Tree."
