A testament to the long and illustrious history of one of fiction's most durable monsters, the vampire. Spanning over a hundred years, the stories in A Taste For Blood place the vampire on a time scale which extends from the middle ages to an indeterminate future and follows an itinerary that includes New England, Europe, Africa, and the planet Venus. From J. Sheridan Le Fanu's "Carmilla," written in the early 1870s, twenty-five years before Bram Stoker's Dracula, to "Son of Celluloid," Clive Barker's dissection of an infinitely consumable world, A Taste for Blood presents more than a century of vampire fiction.
