Cover Art & Promo - "By Blood We Live" edited by John Joseph Adams

Coming August 15, 2009. [via Carrie Vaughn's blog]

From Dracula to Buffy the Vampire Slayer; from Castlevania to Tru Blood, the romance between popular culture and vampires hearkens back to humanity's darkest, deepest fears, flowing through our very blood, fears of death, and life, and insatiable hunger. And yet, there is an attraction, undeniable, to the vampire archetype, whether the pale, wan European count, impeccably dressed and coldly masculine, yet strangely ambiguous, ready to sink his sharp teeth deep into his victims' necks, draining or converting them, or the vamp, the count's feminine counterpart, villain and victim in one, using her wiles and icy sexuality to corrupt man and woman alike...

Gathering together the best vampire literature of the last three decades from many of today's most renowned authors of fantasy, speculative fiction, and horror.

  1. the picture looks so much like the lost boys movie poster.

  2. Wow, I see at least six writers that I enjoy in that partial list. Pretty cool.

  3. Should be a great cross-section of stories from traditional vampire writers to modern UF writers. Not sue how many of these are reprints vs originals but it will be good to get them all under one cover.

  4. Pretty unique cover for it too!

  5. This looks like a must have anthology! I know, for me, it is.
