Recommends it for: EVERYONE
I love this book. It should be required reading for horror fans. I've given copies for Christmas presents and link-spammed everyone I know because this is really special and there are forty-one reasons why: twenty-eight stories and poems, twelve artworks, and (most importantly, in a way) the feeling that this entire project is something that's been worked on with infinite love. There's no sense of any of these stories having been written just because it's somebody's job to write – they read like ...more

The night I started reading this collection, my home had severe thunderstorms and an earthquake. I did not sleep well. I suggest reading this when there's no gloom to speak of outside and the earth is being still under your feet (and you're pretty sure nothing from The Fourth Ape is living under your bed.) Chills aside, this is a super-fun read, with styles ranging from the beautifully classic to the modern and experimental. It's a must for people who'd actually like their monsters to be monstro ...more

Die Booth is a friend of a friend who I have met on a few occasions. I had previously looked at her website but had only really taken the time to read one of the stories there. I like supernatural stories so when she brought out this anthology I asked my friend to get me a copy. You can read about the project which resulted in this book here. http://diebooth.wordpress.com/re-vamp/
There are several authors featured in the collection but this works very well because they all have a similar writing

I absolutely loved this collection. I enjoyed all the stories to varying degrees, but there are definite standouts. 'Lump' and 'All Better' were particular standouts, freshly creeping me out every time I think about them. 'The Fourth Ape' and 'Family' also struck me, both of them having vivid imagery and strongly envisioned characters. Delicious.

As the co-editor of this book, and with several of my stories in it, I may be a slightly biased reviewer, but I'm going to review it anyway!

Bias aside, when me and LC Hu came up with the idea for this book it was because of what we perceived to be a gap in the market. Horror these days has come to largely refer to swooning teenage vampires, or gore-soaked torturers and we really missed the creepy old myths and lamplight subtlety of older horror. What better to do then, than to try and bring the

For my full-length review, please visit Casual Debris.

The concept behind Re-Vamp is to challenge contemporary interpretations of traditional horror creatures by hearkening back to the tales of old. The stories in Re-Vamp feature classic approaches to creatures that go bump in the night, focusing in an orderly fashion on vampires, werewolves, ghosts, zombies and serial killers (oh my!). The project was a labour of love for editors Die Booth and L. C. Hu, who first met by sharing their admiration
