Almost all of the stories were readable, and I really liked how they were grouped by theme. Very good for an anthology.

I am savouring this book.
The short stories, for the most part, are delicious. The stories seem to have a limit of 1000 words. Anyone who appreciates the short story can imagine what a challenge it is to write something interesting with that kind of limit. When done well, stories like this can exhibit the best of talent. Like good film shorts or an excellent plate of tapas, short stories can leave you feeling full and satisfied.
These stories are like that.
They are especially scrumptious in this period of literature when a vampire is injected into any plot to make a book sell. Released 15 years ago, this book has stories from largely unknown authors. The stories range from clever to hysterically funny, but never range into sparkly, romantic or ho-hum vampires. They are witty and even relatively complex.

I hate to say it, but this is a keeper to devour repeatedly.

If you like sparkly vampires or books that rely on telling you what brand of shoe the heroine is wearing, you will absolutely hate this book. If you hate sparkly vampires, you will probably love this book.
