5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Vampiric Tales, 16 Oct 2012
This review is from: In the Shadow of Dracula SC (Paperback)
I found this hidden in the graphic novel section of my library, unloved and unloaned. I rectified that, and was surprised to find that this was not a graphic novel despite being published by IDW - it's actually a very well thought out and illustrated collection of early vampire stories written before 1915. It contains the well known, such as Polidori and Le Fanu, and some less well known gems including Tieck and Nisbet that I'd never read before.

This is an excellent companion anthology to sit alongside works such as Dracula, there are some cute footnotes and each author has a short biog. The illustrations are in graphic novel style and are dark and brooding.

Unfortunately all library loans must come to an end, so now I've had to buy it because my bookshelves were pining for it. Highly recommended for those with an interest in early vampire literature, and considering the range of stories within it, I think it's an excellent price for such a well presented and thoughtful book.
