Vampires, those dark children of the night, who rise from their coffins to suck the blood of the living, continue to hold a strange fascination and dread.

In this unique collection of vampire stories you will find some of the earliest depictions of these fearful creatures as in John Polidori's 'The Vampyre' and James Malcolm Rymer's 'Varney, the Vampyre', a tale which held readers in thrall when it was first published in the mid-nineteenth century.As well as these rare stories and those featuring the more well known bloodsuckers such as Le Fanu's 'Carmilla' and Stoker's 'Dracula', there is a clutch of lesser known but equally frightening tales written by expert practitioners in the art of raising goose pimples.

Children of the Night is a volume filled with the rich blood of chilling vampire fiction.
