"Nothing has sunk its teeth into twenty-first century popular culture as pervasively as the vampire. The fangsters have the freedom to fly across all genres and all mediums--there are even apps for vamps. Whether roaming into romance, haunting horror, sneaking into science fiction, capering into humor, sucking on the sociopolitical, titillating teens, meandering through mystery, heating up supernatural sex, or charming children--no icon is more versatile than the vampire. Slake your insatiable thirst and drink deeply of twenty-five of the best sanguinary stories of the new millennium: terrifying or tender, deadly or delicious, badass or beneficient, romantic or rude, funny or frightening, wily or weary, classic or cutting edge..."--P. [4] of cover.… (more)

Short stories, or no real quality or interest, just ok. They read IMHO like cast off stories published to fit the current vamp craze. ( )

It was a good anthology, with quite a few unknown authors to me. Some stories were quite original and some quite scary. I especially liked an interesting take on vampires in the last one.
Generally I would recommend it to find out if you like an author or not, but I can't be very objective as I'm not a big fan of anthologies. :) ( )
