Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
From Tanith Lee's quietly sensual tale of a vampire's longtime servant ("Nunc Dimittis") to Charles de Lint's account of a young writer's strange love affair ("Tallulah"), these stories gathered by anthologist and editor Guran describe encounters with lasting and overwhelming passion. Other writers featured here include Storm Constantine, Joe R. Lansdale, Steve Rasnic Tem, Elizabeth Hand, Fritz Leiber, Jr., and Edgar Allan Poe. VERDICT Although these pieces have been published elsewhere, they constitute a cohesive themed collection that will find its audience.
