Book Review: Fangs for the Mammaries

Fangs for the Mammaries edited by Esther Friesner

The 3rd anthology in the supernatural suburbia series after the hilarious ‘Witch Way to the Mall’ and the disappointing ‘Strip Mauled’. This book focuses on vampires after its predecessors covered witches and werewolves. What is next? Zombies?

Miss White-Hands Class goes Shopping
A teacher takes her vampire students to the mall for lessons in socialisation. Naturally havoc ensures. This is good and funny.

A Matter of Blood
A vampire is on the loose and a PI and his girlfriend must put a stop to him. This is okay.

Sarah Bailey and the Texas Beauty Queen
A Dallas real estate agent is suspected of being a vampire. Good.

Family Matters
Julian a pompous teen witch tangles with vampires. Okay.

Sappy Meals
A vampire is on trial. Cue parodies of ‘Twilight’ and ‘Anita Blake’. This is good.

Fruit of the Vein
A vampire solves a murder at a party. This is funny and good.

Food Quart
Imagine ‘Dexter’ as a vampiric mall security guard. This is good.

Dazed and Confused
There are unpleasant goings on in suburbia as a feud gets ugly. This is okay.

A teenage girl bemoans her lack of a vampire boyfriend. This is a good parody of ‘Twilight’ and ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’.

Long in the Tooth
A love triangle never ends well. Especially when one of them is a vampire. This is good.

Bella and the Flying Lugosis
Vampire class war, good.

Bait and Switch
A woman makes a living saving idiots from their infatuation with vampires. Then a case gets very complicated, good and yet another ‘Twilight’ parody.
