Summary: An extremely fine anthology of vampire stories and a superior buy at 99 cents.   Normally an anthology selling for 99 cents is a collection of stories that are in the public domain, however the Vampire Megapack is a very  pleasant surprise. The copyright dates of these stories run from 1836 to 2011 (year of publication). There are seven stories that could be considered in public domain and ten printed after 2000, with one story written just for this anthology. The range of dates provides the reader with a nice comparison of how the style of vampire stories has changed over the last 120 years.  Some of the stories that stand out for me are: "Clarimonde" by Theophile Gautier, the oldest story in the collection just for that classic priest/succubus pairing; "Accommodation" by Micheal R. Collings, a very creepy and atmospheric piece of work; "The Art of the Smile" by  John Gregory Betancourt, a warm-hearted story of a son trying to please his father; "Renfield's Syndrome" by Chelsea Quinn Yarbo, a  particularly nasty piece of work; "Caravat of the Damned" by Zach Bartlett, a light comic tale concerning a certain vampire interview; and  "The Fourth Horseman" by Peter Darbyshire, a well done vampire western. Like all good anthologies, the middle stories of the book are just solid stories. There are one or two missteps along the way, but the  majority of the stories are very well done. I found only two typos in the NOOK book. Wildside Press should be congratulated for producing a fine anthology. I can't find the editor's name, but they also deserve congratulations.
