Southern Blood: Vampire Stories from the American South (The American Vampire Series)
Frightening, heart-stopping, and often shocking...
Perhaps more than any region, the American South is haunted by the past. Ghosts of history, of the dead, of wars and lineages, of slights to honor—all linger vividly. So do a host of superstitions, both petty and grand. One of the strongest superstitions of the South is the myth of the vampire, returned from the dead to drain life from the living. The stories in Southern Blood are set in the South—from Florida to Texas, North Carolina to Arkansas—and are written by master storytellers.
Authors include Susan Schwartz, Robert Barbour Johnson, Brian Hodge, Manly Wade Wellman, Fred Chappell, Esther Freisner, James Kisner, Delia Sherman, Dan Simmons, Tracy A. Knight, William Tenn, Lawrence Schimel, and Billie Sure Mosiman.
