I loved this book when I was younger. One of the short stories about Elizabeth Bathory so inspired me that I have been intrigued (my boyfriend says obsessed but we will ignore him) with her for years.

Excellent selection.

A great collection of short stories from all the greats; Lord Byron, Bela Lugosi, Stephen King, Anne Rice, Ray Bradbury and the list goes on.

The one glaring omission is John Polidori's The Vampyre.

I loved this book. Perfect for someone who loves vampire stories and is interested in the origin of them.
Not only does it look at stories but also films
