From Publishers Weekly:

A creative collaboration among eight writers and an artist from Ohio, this unusual book, which bears a conceptual similarity to Strange Attraction [...] tells a haunting, drama-drenched story about the loneliness of vampires. Through a series of linked stories--which, though written by different authors, are all based on coeditor Vargo's paintings--contributors recount the history of the castle's curse and of Brom, the heartbroken vampire who currently inhabits the spooky tower. "The Dark Tower" recounts the story of Brom's predecessor, the Baron; "Vampire's Kiss" (by Vargo and coeditor Christine Filipak) tells of Brom's deceased lover, Rianna; sundry other tales (by James Pipik, Joseph Iorillo, Eric Muss-Barnes and others) deliver stories about evil gargoyles, freaked-out civilians and the like. Sure to be a hit among Goth-mystery lovers, this book contains all the classic elements of good vampire fiction--a self-aware, disaffected and lovesick protagonist, a mythic curse and a complicated legend--along with a rich display of gothic artwork.

Review:

These tales are the perfect companion on a stormy October night, when lightning is flashing through the window and the wind is raking tree branches against the house.
--Kate Templeton Hancock, Ohioana Quarterly

Without a doubt the best anthology of gothic fiction in years. The thirteen tales are cleverly linked together to form a mythic saga that will leave you thirsting for more. These superbly crafted stories draw you into a sinister world of nightmares and passions, with twists at every dark corner. Light a candelabra and curl up with this one.
--Vincent Kastle, Dark Realms Magazine
