OVERVIEW: “These seventeen mesmerizing tales, each one creepier than the next, will delight vampire and other horror fans.” —Library Journal.
For those who enjoy stories that frighten and tales that create disquieting chills, this anthology presents stories of vampires and other deadly, twisted creatures that may look as ordinary as anyone. These others, as portrayed in these disturbing, eerie tales by some of the finest horror writers in the field today, may not sink fangs into necks, but in a variety of different ways can just as effectively drain one’s essence, suck out one’s life, steal one’s soul. With tales by award-winners Laird Barron, Elizabeth Bear, Kathe Koja, Margaret Lanagan, Bill Pronzini, Barbara Roden, Lisa Tuttle, Kaaron Warren, and others, this is an anthology that will slake the thirst for great horror fiction in any reader.
