Great collection

A great mix of vampire themed fiction
The stories range from standard blood suckers to your plant and aquatic variety
Joshua is very skilled at multiple accents and his narration fit this perfectly
A creative take on a classic creature highly recommended

this book is so awesome!

omg i LOVED this book! It's a collection of 13 vampire stories and let me tell you! They are all kinds of vampires here. Mr. Lumley pulls from folklore (yay!!), H.P. Lovecraft, fantasy and more. i still have 2 stories to go but i doubt those 2 will change my rating of this book. These vampires are not pretty or romantic and sometimes not even human. i would definitely read more by this author.
Joshua Saxton reads this and omg! He does such a great job. i thought there was more than 1 narrator. He does that good with all the different accents. I would listen to him read just about anything.

** I received this audio book in exchange for a honest review. This is it. Thank you so very much Mr. Saxton for the book!!**

Not many vampires

It's more ":A coven of Lovecraft stories", which is good, just very few vampires. It's good tho

Very original takes on vampires.

This is an interesting collection of vampire short stories. I was impressed. Alot of these stories are not about your typical vampire. Anything from a lamia to a blood sucking plant can be found in this collection. If you're looking for some out of the box vampire/creature stories, this is a good place to start.

At my request, I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

Simply amazing

I loved how new ideas where created to the Vampirical Story lines!
My favorite though is defintley the tale about the Lamier!
narrator was excellent also (i do love a foreign accent-- i'm american)

I received a copy of the audible version in exchange for a honest review.
I hope everyone enjoys it as much as i did!

More Lumley on Audible please

This is another excellent Lumley short collection, I think this is the third, but it's a good one and Josua Saxon is a great narrator for this collection, almost perfect throughout.

I'd recommend this to all Lumley fans, although be aware that does not mean ''Necroscope'' fans, I mean real Lumley fans.

I particularly enjoyed ''The Strange Years''' as it reflects perfectly the way I often feel how Gaia might respond to the human blight. "The Kiss of the Lamia", "The Thief Immortal", "Uzzi, Haggopian" and "The Picknickers" were also marvellous. There were only two that I did not care for at all and one of them, sadly, was the very first "What Dark God?", I did not feel that it was the best start to the book, but I did feel that "The House of the Temple" was a good ending. Which will be your favourites?

This is a good mix of stories, none of which are about Vampires as you might expect them, so be warned there, this is more Cthulhu Mythos than Vampire Lestat (and there are very definitely no sparkly vampires here).

I was lucky enough to receive my copy free of charge and am delighted to leave this unbiased and honest review (I admit though, to having been a Brian Lumley fan for decades).
