Cannot fault this book. Lots and lots of great stories, some classics, some I have never read before. Includes a comprehensive bibliography (I assume) of old and new vampire tales, pages and pages of additional reading material.
I am not sure of the exact relationship with the other 'Vampire Archives' by the same authors, it contains a few less pages (about 40 or so) - no idea if the stories are close or the same. There is no Neil Gaiman in this version. Might be worth checking out both of the books to see the contents??

One of the best vampire anthologies in recent years .Nice mix of classic tales and newer short stories.Handy bedside book that one can keep dipping into, to select from a vast variety of short tales. Also there is a section at the back of this tome,recording all the vampires novels ever published,indicating if it's short and full length stories, publisher and date of publication.

Ridiculous value and mint condition. This compedium consists of a huge collection of strange & horror tales long & short from early Lovecraft to current Stephen King which will take months to finish its 1200 pages with the longest bibliography ever included. Cannot comment on contents as I have yet to otherwise check its contents, but give it the benefit of the doubt. . Also It is just one item amongst a score of other similar offerings I have collected for Kindle at further ridiculous cost . Just a comment that some titles are of known classics such as Dracula's Guest & Carmilla are included. If you have the space,or confined to a hospital bed indefinitely - get it !
