Vampire Detectives edited by Martin H. Greenberg, part 2
Girl's Night Out
Cliche watch is on full alert in this inglorious, badly written tale that is not challenging, satisfying or explorative.
A freaky sleazy tale set in a post-apoc Ameirca. This was pointless and awful.
Origin Of Species
This was bad.
A vampire serial killer is on the loose. This tries for realism and is not emotive.
“Probably a hooker. Dressed like one.”
“Smiling at the cars, like I taught her to do.”
The Night Of Their Lives
A Depression era vampire tale that is not done with sincere commitment.
A priest asks a vampire for help. There is no practical reasoning.
This is all smugness and moral superority and castigation. This was not emotive.
No Blood For A Vampire
The utterly arbitrary so called norm is disrupted or soemthing.
The Count's Mailbox
Dracula gets involved in the publishing industry. This was okay.
“Good critcal ink.”
“Nervous about crossing category lines.”
Tom Rudolph's Last Tape
A noir detective fell for the wrong dame. This was okay.
An odd okay little tale of NY and monsters.
