Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This collage of short stories centers on the theme of the female vampire. Some stories are eerie or despairing, while others show a glint of humor. In George Alec Effinger's "Mard and the Trail of Blood," the wisecracking narrator lives in a future Arabic society where computer chips for the brain can make folks believe that they're anything, even vampires. Deborah Wheeler's "Survival Skills" finds a vampire single mom, much to her chagrin, turing into a normal, mortal-like PTA member. Editor Hambly's contribution, "Madeline," strikes a slightly more somber note with a ruthless vampire who becomes cursed with hearing the voices of her victims. In "La Dame," the lyric prose of Tanith Lee shows that vampires come in other than human form. Fans of Larry Niven's Ringworld (Ballantine, 1985) will be pleased to find the beginnings of a sequel in the novella "Song of the Night People." There are 14 original stories in all, several by well-known science fiction and fantasy writers. For most popular collections.-Patricia Altner, Information Seekers, Bowie, Md.
