    Very cool, nice addition. It must be a pretty rare book to find 26 years later. Who else is in there? Matheson? Le Fanu? Polidori? They seem to be staples of vampire anthologies.

    Is that Alan Peter Ryan who edited that?

    Will do. Since this dates back into 1987, I don't have a lot of hope of finding anything out, but you never know!

    Most interesting. A tale worth hearing once discovered. Keep us informed if you find out, John.

    My newest:

    Vampires: Two Centuries of Great Vampire Stories with King's One for the Road:



    This one is rather unique in that the proof contains King's story, but the finished book does not. I don't know the story behind it.
