Overview

Few parts of America are as historied as the South, so it’s no surprise that many southern horror stories feature the long-lived vampire. Vampire Stories from the American South is a feast of fear for lovers of vampire fiction, offering a dozen tales in which insatiable vampires prowl plantations and scour the bayous in search of mortal blood.
 
Spanning settings that range from Virginia to Louisiana, and from Florida to Texas, these stories feature creatures of the living dead that are haunting incarnations of local color and folklore unique to the southern states. Some of those raised here include:
 
*a blood-drinking monster of the Mardi-Gras in Susan Shwartz’s “The
Carpetbagger”
*femme fatale who stalks the Civil War battlefields in Manly Wade Wellman’s
“The Cursed Damozel”
*an Elvis Presley immortalized by more than his music in Tracy A. Knight’s
“Blessed By His Dying Tongue”
 
The South rises again in these eerie tales of the supernatural, and the shape it takes is sure to bring a chill on the most sultry southern summer night!

Read an Excerpt

As she wandered down Royal, she thought she almost fit in here now, here, in this dancing dress that might have belonged once to some Creole jeune fille bien elevee who would not have been let out this late at night. It made sense. New Orleans spent more than half its time steeped in the past. Living and dead slept close together, and time here was twisty. It flowed sideways like a cat, to rub against the living or jump at them, out of the shadows, and sink in claws and fangs.

                                                   —Susan Shwartz, from "The Carpetbagger"

    Not to my taste

    I thought the stories weren't all that great. Definitely not worth the money to me--good thing it was on super-sale.

    Excellent addition for any vampire collection

    This book adds in some tales not found in the traditional vampire anthologies, with some stories imparting a new twist on some of the standing preconceptions of vampire lore. Insightful stories, perfect for just enjoying.
