"Vampire Erotic Anthology"
"The Perfect Form" by Pat Shalah: Basically this
is about a club that vampires frequent. There are females
dancing at the club. Everyone is vying for the vampires'
attentions. This story was somewhat confusing and there
were parts I wasn't sure I followed at all. It had to do
with first, second and third generation vampires and what
kind of offspring each generation created. The younger
generation changes form from male to female when turned and
are slaves to the elders.
I personally didn't understand the story enough to say I
enjoyed or didn't enjoy it.
"Cinnamon Kisses" by Renee M. Charles: A woman tells
that tale of her conversion to the vampire life and the
truths about vampires. She tells how she had to change her
shift to nights due to an unprotected sex encounter she
had. She used a condom, but never thought to protect her
neck. Actually vampires don't need much blood and it's very
easy to get when you shave people in a place like Heads or
Tails. Heads or Tails is a shop that caters to a special
clientele. They give full body waxes and razor or lather
shaves be it on the head or the lower regions. This
vampire gets her nourishment with an accidental nick here
and there. There are humans that she calls takers, they
are ones whose blood really sings to a vampire.
Basically there is a description of who she is and what
she does. There is a very descriptive same sex encounter
with a taker.
"The Hunger" by Warren Lapine: Imagine going for
years hungry, you don't die, but there is no food. You're
the last vampire, since the earth was destroyed. You are
mentally reminiscing about the woman that created you and
the wonderful sex you had. You search day and night for
the one that created praying she survived. Since she
wasn't with you when the earth blew you have no idea what
happened to her. Worse yet you crave death, but that can't
be. Stakes won't kill a vampire only sunlight will do
that. Due to a Nuclear Winter you have no idea when the
nuclear winter will end, so you can end your torment.
I liked this story, but it seemed as if it were a rewrite
me of a Twilight Zone episode I watched once.
"Wanting" by Amelia G: From Goth to Glamor is what
this 32 year old woman went from and to. Coming from the
store this glamor girl runs into Danielle a lady she used
to know. Only now the lady is grungy and dirty and
homeless. She takes Danielle home and cleans her up. They
then have quite a bit of sex. During some of it the woman
is tied to the bed. Danielle shows her there is more then
meets the eye when she removes her robe.
This isn't your typical vampire. She needs to be needed
not blood. Not a bad story.
"Preditor" by Raven Kaldera: This is the prequel to
"Prey" in EROTICA VAMPIRICA. It tells how
Reyna caught vampirism and the rules of living with
vampirism and not becoming an outlaw. A vampire is to take
their prescriptions, and not drink blood. If they do they
are hunted and killed. Trouble is the vampire also can't
have sex. Basically this is an owner and slave type
story. Sex, leather and such.
"The Brass Ring" by Randy Brown: A bi-sexual artist
has a vampire lover. The vampire lover also happens to be
able to change shape from male to female at will. The bi-
sexual lover gets the vampire to dress up in a dress and go
out with him. They ride animals on a carousel and the man
tells the vampire about when he was young and used to try
and catch the brass ring. The vampire has sex as a woman
for the first time.
This is basically a story about a vampire finding love with
someone that loves him, but wants him any way the shape
changing vampire is happy.
"Loved to Death" by Dave Smeds: This story is about
sexually insatiable female vampire. It starts with a lot
of sex and is basically about sex. The vampire can not
find a human to fulfill her without having to kill him.
Finally she meets a male like herself.
Personally I didn't like any of the stories in this book as
well as I did the stories in EROTICA VAMPIRICA.
