From Library Journal:

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the publication of Bram Stoker's Dracula. The infamous count is probably the best-known nosferatu, but many tales centering on the undead have been written. Editor Wolf (Dracula: The Connoisseur's Guide, Broadway, 1997), who has written extensively about Dracula, has assembled a collection of short stories and novel excerpts that show the variety of vampire villains and even heroes that populate the genre. Novel excerpts include Stephen King's Salem's Lot and Richard Matheson's I Am Legend. Some of the short stories, such as F. Marion Crawford's "For the Blood Is the Life," have been anthologized in several collections, but others, such as Leslie Roy Carter's "Vanishing Breed," are more difficult to find. Wolf has put together an interesting mix of vampire tales that would serve as an excellent introduction to the literature. Recommended for public library and supernatural collections.‘Patricia Altner, Information Seekers, Bowie, Md. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
