    One thought on “Night Visions: In the Blood”

    1. Introduction by Alan Ryan and illustrated by Gregory Manchess, and the following stories: Charles L. Grant Friends in Dark Places Family What Are Deaths For Poor Thing To Laugh With You, Dear In the Blood And We'll Be Jolly Friends Steve Rasnic Tem The Men and Women of Rivendale Dark Shapes in the Road Spidertalk Punishment The Overcoat Rider Worms Tanith Lee The Tree: A Winter's Tale Simon's Wife The Vampire Lover The Hunting of Death: The Unicorn

    2. One thing I love about these Night Visions anthologies of the 80s is the fact that you get a fair sampling of a writer's work as opposed to just one story apiece from dozens of authors. In each of the volumes, three authors get about 90-100 pages worth of stories each, and whether they spend them using 6 or 7 short stories or 1 or 2 longer stories is up to them (or the editor I guess). This helps to allow each to show off their full range as writers. Here, Charles L. Grant and Steve Rasnic Tem g [...]

    3. Overall I thought that this was a decent anthology and though a lot of the stories were pretty average there were none that I disliked or did not enjoy in some way. The introduction by Alan Ryan was great - it was short and to the point, not drawn out and boring as some can be and it nicely introduced the three featured authors and what the book held in store.The standout stories for me were 'In the Blood' by Charles L. Grant, 'Spidertalk' and 'Punishment' by Steve Rasnic Tem and 'The Vampire Lo [...]

    4. I am a die hard fan of Tanith Lee's short stories. They are food for the soul. I got this book for her stories--especially The Vampire Lover.This story alone gets 5 stars!Most reviewers give high praise to the works of the two men in this anthology and ignore or dismiss Lee's stories. For me those highly praised stories of plagues and spiders were very boring. The writing has no style and the themes are merely depressing. I hate to call them typical American pulp, but for me that's what they are [...]

    5. First, I think this was a great idea for an anthology. Taking multiple stories from three authors and showcasing them together was unusual. I think my favorite stories were by Charles L. Grant. Some of the stories weren't as enjoyable as I would have liked, and there were times I struggled, though these are all esteemed and talented writers. It might have been due to the very format I was so excited about. When I read an anthology, I'm accustomed to having to reset mentally between authors/stori [...]

    6. Interesting format -- 3 authors, 100 pages each, a variety of short stories, all from literary horror writers of the time. Clarharles L Grant--I think I'm just never going to like his characters or plots. God writing.Steve Rasnic Tem--really liked his style, but most of these stories are, "and then it tuned out they were crazy." Tanith Lee--she has a REALLY Gothic style, but what felt like the stories with the most juice. Not really horror, but Gothic. As you do.

    7. I was kind of let down with this book.You would think with these 3 authors that it would be a wonderful book but I found that these stories were not,for the most part,scary or particularly very good with the exception of the story about spiders.
