Thick Trade Paperback, Edited by Alan Ryan, copyright 1987 with 33 Vampire Stories by Famous Authors on 621 pages. - They're lurking under the cover of darkness....and between the covers of this book. Here, in all their horror and all their glory are the great vampires of literature-male and female, invisible and metamorphic, doomed and daring. Their skin deathly pale, theirs nails curved like claws, their fangs sharpened for the attack, they are gathered for the kill and for the chill, brought frighteningly to life by Bram Stoker, Fritz Leiber, Richard Matherson, Robert Bloch, Charles L. Grant, Tanith Lee, and other masters of the macabre. Careful...they are all crafty enough to steal their way into your imagination and steal away your hopes for a restful sleep.
