Mostly a good collection of stories

While some of the stories in this anthology are extremely well written, others are not. Sadly, the first story is just such one firmly in the not category. An obvious poorly executed retelling of Dracula (poorly handled with a slight Indian twist), the story sours the listener right as the book begins. Other stories, such as the one by E.H. Heron, go a long way to make up for the few poor ones. To be fair, i purchased this book while it was on sale, and for the small amount of money I spent (it wasn't worth wasting a credit on due to the slight cost), I got what I paid for, so to speak. If it again is on sale, Vampire fans may wish to pick it up to see how early twentieth century writers dealt with the rise in popularity of Vampires after Dracula. However, if you want a really good Vampire story, once that is vastly superior to Dracula (and preceded it) get J.Sheridan La Fanu's excellent Carmilla.
