All things supernatural and vampiric appear in these 5 stories on the theme of blood and horror. Richard Pasco reads with spine-chilling brilliance. This chiling selection of 'vampyre' short stories makes no apology for its broad interpretation of the genre. The stories range from the traditional blooksuckers -- the undead who sustain a deadly existence by preying on the life-blood of the living -- like Bram Stoker's seminal Dracula's guest and E.F. Benson's Mrs. Amworth -- to others rich in vampire imagery, as in Poe's gothic tale, Ligeia, in which a dead woman takes possession of a living soul, the story of the dreadful appetites of Hoffman's Aurelia and Rudyard Kipling's The mark of the beast in which a deadly bite revenges a desecrated Indian God with fearful consequences. A ghoulish pot-pourri of vampirism and horror from classic story-tellers of the genre.
