What would you do if you had unlimited power and eternal life?
Would you…go back to high school? Attend the same classes year after year, going through the pomp and circumstance of one graduation after another, until you found the perfect date to take to prom? Would you…spend your days moping and brooding, finding your only joy in a game of baseball on a stormy day? Or would you…do something else?
The authors of this collection have a few ideas; some fanciful, some humorous, and some as dark as an endless night. Join us, and discover what it truly means to be “vampyre.” -Goodreads
My ThoughtsThis anthology is for those of us who like a little bite with our vampire. Those of us who crave the scare more than the swoon. Those of us wanting the fright with the fangs. This darkly delicious smorgasbord of things that go bump in the night is a feast for true horror lover.
Sporting a list that reads like a who's who of horror; this book has something for every fan of the fanged.
