From dark Victorian melodramas to gritty contemporary tales, here is a stunning new collection of over thirty short stories, all centering around the theme of the curious and dreaded vampire.
Lurking within this volume are vampires in all their variety, in all their horror -- male and female, invisible and metamorphic, romantic and fearsome -- all with a compelling, irresistable presence, waiting to make themselves known to us.
This deliciously chilling volume includes works from such classic and modern masters of fantasy and horror as Bram Stoker, Fritz Leiber, Richard Matheson, Robert Bloch, Charles L. Grant, and Tanith Lee.
With a fascinating introduction, headnotes, and annotated listings of vampire novels and movies by editor Alan Ryan, Vampires is a true collector's edition, sure to provide hours of spellbinding reading.

Very nice primer on vampire fiction from "The Vampyre" by John Polidori (1819) to "Bite Me Not or, Fleur De Flue" by Tanith Lee (1984). A must for any vampire aficionado.
