Vampires, The Recent Undead edited by Paula Guran, 430 pages
This is a collection of vampire short stories previously published between 2000 and 2010. These are written by some outstanding authors such as Charlaine Harris, Charles De Lint, Kelley Armstrong and one of my favorite vampire authors of all time, Chelsea Quinn Yarbro. These are varied vampires, some dark and sexy, others more metaphysical and then ones that are truer to the original fiends that populated early folklore. This is a great read for fans of vampire literature.
