Awesome Anthology

This book is amazing. It is a prime example of the creative influence the vampire theme. I highly recommend this collection. They are not very scary but great stories.

Overall a great anthology

Great collection of stories by a variety of authors; Clive Barker, Robert Bloch, Kim Newman, Bram Stoker, to name a few. I liked "Midnight Mass," best, the story of a priest, a Jew, and vampires, as it brought up some interesting theology questions. I have wondered since I was a kid how Jewish people protect themselves from vampires. What a great story. The best stories, IMHO, were the novellas at the end, "Midnight Mass," "Yellow Fog," and, "Red Reign." There are shorter stories that are great, but the novellas made the book for me. There were only two stories that didn't interest me and I skipped. That's not bad for such a large book, and believe me, it lives up to its name, it is big!

Classic vampire tales; both alluring and haunting.

This collection contains some of the best known writers in the genre: Clive Barker, Brian Lumley, Ramsey Campbell, Robert Bloch, Edgar Allen Poe, Richard Christian Matheson, Graham Masterton, Melanie Tem and Basil Cooper. Most of these tales are modern-day although there are a few classics peppered throughout. The Mammoth Book of Vampires represents the variety of tales and legends to its fullest extent.
