bookshelves: horror, short-stories

A rather well planned collection of short-stories curated for their relevancy to both vampire lore and era in which they were written.

This book took me FOREVER to read through. Some of the stories enthralled me, and had me reading voraciously. Others dragged and left me wondering why they were included. While I was not enamored of all the stories housed within, the book as a whole was interesting enough.

Horror buffs and vampire aficionados ought to appreciate the stories within the compilation.
