The vampire: one of the great enemies of humanity, a nightmarish figure who feeds on the living in order to sustain themselves. Born from ancient folklore, writers in the nineteenth century gave form to the vampire as we know it. Still haunting our subconscious today, a new wave of writers have continued to develop the imagery and traditions of this classic Gothic creature.
From the genre-defining stories of John Polidori and Bram Stoker to experimental and freshly thrilling takes by Angela Carter, Anne Rice, and John Ajvide Lindqvist, this new collection sets out to present the enrapturing range of the vampire story and our undying fascination with the monster at its heart.
