A chill inducing and masterful collection of vampire tales, culled from the dark recesses of the nefarious and world-renowned Vampires Archives. Coffins, the third volume in the series, contains some of the best of the best vampire fiction. The authors, including Harlan Ellison, Robert Bloch, Edgar Allan Poe, and F. Paul Wilson, take listeners readers deep inside the crypts of the living dead, in all their supernatural splendor.
Collected here are the stories, poems, and religious writings that preceded and helped form the science fiction and fantasy genres. The collection explores the key imaginative roots and their later literary permutations. The author list alone reads like a literary who’s who and includes many writers not primarily known for their forays into the fantastic. Organized by topic rather than simple chronology, this volume allows the listener to trace the history of robots, aliens, and apocalypses up to some of their most recent manifestations.
