Like Haining's other Omnibuses, "Vampire" is a theme, not a guarentee. Exploring the predecessors, contemporaries and children of the big names, Haining offers context and commentary on the genre as a whole.

The titles is a bit misleading, I think. But there are some good vampire stories in there. ( )

Book description
The list of great vampire movies made since the turn of the century reflects the public's enduring fascination with the dark legend of Dracula. In this collection, Peter Haining has brought together not only the earliest and rarest vampire tales, but also the short stories on which many of the great horror films of the genre were based; and a wide ranging selection of contributions by some of the great modern masters of horror, such as Stephen King, Ray Bradbury and William F Nolan In addition, this collection includes some freshly unearthed surprises: the first vampire story by a woman, written in 1828; THE BRIDE OF THE ISLES, allegedly written by Lord Byron; COUNT DRACULA, written by the great comedian Woody Allen.
