Performer Gildart Jackson's deep voice and British accent recalls a younger Vincent Price, and adds real ghoulish drama to this collection of bloodsucking tales from near and far. Alongside more familiar names such as Bram Stoker and Sabine Baring-Gould, there are tales from Pu Songling of China, Mary Fortune of Australia, George Whyte-Melville of Scotland, and more. All are presented with an in-depth introduction that adds context to the tale. Some stories involve a more subtle spook while others are more action-oriented, but all are likely to give you a delicious chill. A spine-tingling treat for fans of the vampire genre and supernatural horror in general.
Long lost to the public in out-of-print pulp magazines, dusty Victorian anthologies, and the pages of now defunct newspapers, these vintage vampire stories have truly proved immortal.
Resurrected now for the year 2011, this is a stunning collection of nineteenth-century vampire stories by heavyweights such as Sabine Baring-Gould and Bram Stoker. These rare stories are arranged in chronological order from 1846 to 1913 and are compiled by two of the world's leading vampire anthologists and experts.
