"Since Dracula first appeared, vampires have become the ghoul of choice for many horror fans. Today, vampires can be anyone, [and] in this collection of  chilling, funny, and sensitive stories the undead include even the girl next door. Any reader with the slightest thirst for blood won't go away hungry." —BL.

Jane Yolen is the award-winning author of more than two hundred books, including fantasy, science fiction, and poetry, which earned her the moniker the American Hans Christian Andersen. Her titles include Odysseus in the Serpent Maze, The Dragon's Boy, and The Girl Who Loved the Wind. Jane Yolen divides her time between a farmhouse in Massachusetts and a house in Scotland.From School Library Journal:
Grade 5-7-- For those who are ready to be immersed in the world of vampires, this collection is a must. Yolen and Greenberg have compiled 12 original tales from various authors and combined them into a highly readable, entertaining, delightfully creepy, and sometimes funny accumulation. "There's No Such Thing" involves two sisters, one of whom is severely asthmatic, the other a vampire. So well told, it draws readers in and sends shivers up the spine. "The Blood-Ghoul of Scarsdale," written in the vernacular, will appeal to teen mall goers. "A Cold Stake" is set in the future. The depth and breadth of these selections will make Vampires enormously appealing to all types of readers. The arrangement of the stories flows; the selections get better and better. A popular buy for youngsters who keep asking for more "scary stories." --Molly Kinney, formerly at Miami Dade Public Library System, Miami, FL
