Overall a great anthology July 10 2005
By Reb - Published on
Format: Paperback
Great collection of stories by a variety of authors; Clive Barker, Robert Bloch, Kim Newman, Bram Stoker, to name a few. I liked "Midnight Mass," best, the story of a priest, a Jew, and vampires, as it brought up some interesting theology questions. I have wondered since I was a kid how Jewish people protect themselves from vampires. What a great story. The best stories, IMHO, were the novellas at the end, "Midnight Mass," "Yellow Fog," and, "Red Reign." There are shorter stories that are great, but the novellas made the book for me. There were only two stories that didn't interest me and I skipped. That's not bad for such a large book, and believe me, it lives up to its name, it is big!

Reading with Tequila Oct. 23 2009
By Jennifer Sicurella - Published on
Format: Paperback
Each one had at least one twist to the vampire lore that I had never seen before and enjoyed immensely. Unfortunately, while those four stories were exceptional, the remaining 25 were not. While none of the stories were bad, they all seemed to lack something new or different. They failed at grabbing my attention. 75 pages of some of the best vampire fiction I've ever read just isn't enough to carry the rest of this book.

Good, Not Great Collection of Vampire Stories July 16 2009
By Cody Carlson - Published on
Format: Paperback
Stephen Jones' collection of vampire fiction, "The Mammoth Book of Vampires" has a few really fun stories, but on the whole is just okay. Standouts in this collection are F. Paul Wilson's "Midnight Mass", Les Daniels' "Yellow Fog", and Kim Newman's "Andy Warhol's Dracula, Anno Dracula 1978-79". Some others provide their share of chills, but there are some real stinkers here. One particular disappointment was the offering "Vampire" by the son of Richard Matheson, which reads like bad poetry, having nothing at all to do with vampires. This might be just one to check out of the library.

Classic vampire tales; both alluring and haunting. Oct. 8 1997
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This collection contains some of the best known writers in the genre: Clive Barker, Brian Lumley, Ramsey Campbell, Robert Bloch, Edgar Allen Poe, Richard Christian Matheson, Graham Masterton, Melanie Tem and Basil Cooper. Most of these tales are modern-day although there are a few classics peppered throughout. The Mammoth Book of Vampires represents the variety of tales and legends to its fullest extent.
great classic..... Nov. 19 2014
By George Nestler - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a mostly very good anthology of classic and newer stories. Especially liked Barker, Bloch,Campbell,Burke,Copper,Yarbro and last but not least Wellman and Lee. Just to name a few of this wonderful cross section of children of the night stories. I can"t possible understand anyone giving this great collection 1 star. Must have had a bad day. I"ve had some myself. Kidding aside, these are as stated above mostly very good vampire tales.
