Currently this review is just for the story "Anthony's Vampire," free online here at Nightmare Magazine. Review first posted on Fantasy Literature:

When Anthony is nine years old, he first meets the vampire, a scrawny and awkward young girl with thick glasses and dishwater blond hair, clinging to the tree outside his bedroom window. He invites her in, on condition of “no biting,” and they form an odd friendship that lasts all summer. But Anthony breaks off the friendship when he is almost ten. Sh

Wow. I've only ever read one of this author's stories before and was already impressed how haunting a location she could conjure up. It's no different here.

The story is about the titular Anthony who, in various stages of his life, meats a vampire. It's about the balance (or imblanace) of power, about being human, about being a monster.

The writing is flawless. Not too concoluted, not too simple. Very impactful, with great world-building.

The horror arrives in specific scenes that may or may not have happened, and in the ambiguity of who of at least three possibilities is the monster in the s ...more

“Anthony, you know I’m real!”
“I know. But that doesn’t mean I have to believe in you.”

Man... if growing up means you can't believe in things you know are real, why do we ever grow up?

This was a rather creepy story, but not in the typical way of vampire stories. Anthony is much less likeable than his nameless vampire, and I don't know what she saw in him for as long as she did. But I guess I feel that way about a lot of relationships...
