THE MAMMOTH BOOK OF VAMPIRE STORIES BY WOMEN

KIRKUS REVIEW

Jones, King of the Horror Editors (The Mammoth Book of Best New Horror, 2000, etc.), opens the lid on the first-ever collection of vampire stories by women. Not to be confused with his Mammoth horror annuals, this ladies’ night out counts among its top names: Anne Rice (the Queen of Blood’s only vampire short story, from a 1984 issue of Redbook), Poppy Z. Brite (loathsomely blistering in “Homewrecker”), Chelsea Quinn Yarbro, Tanith Lee, and Nancy A. Collins (“Vampire King of the Goth Chicks”). Ingrid Pitt’s intro tells of her work with Hammer Films and her roles as Sheridan Le Fanu’s famed Carmilla in The Vampire Lovers and as serial killer Erzsebet Bathory in Countess Dracula.

Fangs for the memories.
