I enjoyed this anthology quite a bit! I think there's a story in here for everyone. An eclectic mix. Some of my favorites were:
Michael Skeet's RED BLUES. A sexy riff on jazz and obsessive hunger that manifests in a slick read.
Victoria Fisher's THE DRINKER presents sublime vampirism with a kick.
SLEEPLESS IN CALGARY by Kevin Cockle is clever, with an unexpected twist.
Colleen Anderson's AN EMBER AMONGST THE FALLEN is strong and disturbing, but an interesting take on the new vampire.
And Steve Vernon's THE GREATEST TRICK had me nodding. Who wants to be a vampire? Love the subtle insinuation of vampires into society.
