Vampires: The Recent Undead

( 10 )

Overview

The undead are more alive today than ever. Immortal? Indeed! Nothing has sunk its teeth into twenty-first century popular culture as pervasively as the vampire. The fangsters have the freedom to fly across all genres and all mediums - there's even apps for vamps. Whether roaming into romance, haunting horror, sneaking into science fiction, capering into humor, meandering through mystery - no icon is more versatile than the vampire.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Guran (Zombies: The Recent Dead) compiles 25 21st-century vampire stories, with an all-star author lineup. Several stories focus on vampirism as a cure for disease, as in Mary A. Turzillo's "When Gretchen Was Human," in which a mother sacrifices her humanity for the chance of curing her daughter's cancer, and Charles de Lint's "Sisters," in which a lonely vampire persuades herself that her frail human sister ought to be turned. Tanith Lee's "La Vampiresse" has a satisfyingly twisty ending. In "Dahlia Underground," Charlaine Harris's titular character, a vampire who hates humans, finds herself forced to work with them. In Kelley Armstrong's hilarious "Zen and the Art of Vampirism," vampire Zoe repels a team of takeover wannabes. The stories mostly harp on familiar themes: death, immortality, loss. Only a few standouts provide real insight into the (in)human condition. (June)
Library Journal
Guran, an anthologist (The Year's Best Dark Fantasy & Horror 2010) and editor of Pocket Books' Juno fantasy imprint, has selected 25 vampire stories of the "new millennium" that reflect a diversity of themes. Holly Black's "The Coldest Girl in Cold Town" provides a bleak look at what it means to trade your humanity for immortality and eternal thirst. On the other hand, Tanya Huff's heroine, Vicki Nelson, in "No Matter Where You Go" unselfishly follows three desperate teens into a hellish alternate universe. Tanith Lee uses her wonderfully bizarre imagination for an unusual take on the vampire theme in "La Vampiresse." Nisi Shawl's "To the Moment" combines the themes of love and the predatory nature of the vampire, while Johan Langan chills the reader with a horrifying tale of a creature haunting four American soldiers in "The Wide, Carnivorous Sky." Other noted fantasy authors, including Carrie Vaughn, Jeanne C. Stein, Kelley Armstrong, Nancy Kilpatrick, and Chelsea Quinn Yarbro, are well represented here. VERDICT This splendid collection will appeal to readers of the vampire genre as well as fantasy in general.—Patricia Altner, BiblioInfo.com, Columbia, MD

    Im the first review!!!!!!!!!!!

    I loved this book even though i just got a free sample. I will tell u people what it is about of what i read. In the story a girl named matilda had the cold. She got it because a vampire bitten her. She only had 57days left before she became a vampire. The only way that would stop her from biting her loved ones was to drink. Matilda loved julian. A boy came and told matilda that his sister and her boyfriend were some where far. The boys sister wanted to be bitten by a vampire. Matilda died and became a vampire. Some kids found matilda and told her that she was going to owe them something. The next day she bitten some girl. The other kids thought she was dead.The boys sister sent a post that to meet her at the festival of sinners.
    THE END. I loved this book!!!!! Highly recommended.
