More Anthologies - The Eternal Kiss

An anthology is one book with several short stories in it (mostly by different authors). You get several short "books" in one single book. Great if you don't have too much time to read (i.e. when traveling, before going to bed, etc.) or if you want to discover new authors. This week on YA Vampire Books, I will future several anthologies with a supernatural theme.

Titel: The Eternal Kiss: 13 Vampire Tales of Blood and Desire
Authors: Holly Black, Libba Bray, Melissa de la Cruz, Cassandra Clare, Rachel Caine, Nancy Holder & Debbie Viguie, Cecil Castellucci, Kelley Armstrong, Maria V. Snyder, Sarah Rees Brennan, Lili St. Crow, Karen Mahoney & Dina James
Publisher: Running Press Kids (July 2009)
Pages: 416

There’s an allure to vampire tales that have seduced readers for generations. From Bram Stoker to Stephanie Meyer and beyond, vampire stories are here to stay. For those fresh-blooded fans of paranormal romance or for those whose hunt and hunger never dies, these stories have what readers want!

This collection of original tales comes from some of the hottest, most popular, and best-selling YA writers, including:
• Holly Black (The Spiderwick Chronicles, Tithe)
• Libba Bray (A Great and Terrible Beauty)
• Melissa De La Cruz (Blue Blood)
• Cassandra Clare (City of Bones)
• Rachel Caine (Morganville Vampires)
• Nancy Holder & Debbie Viguie (Wicked)
• Cecil Castellucci (Boy Proof, Queen of Cool)
• Kelley Armstrong (Women of Otherworld)
• Maria V. Snyder
• Sarah Rees Brennan
• Lili St. Crow
• Karen Mahoney
• Dina James

They will make everyone a sucker for eternal kisses.

- This is the last post of Anthology Week - and you know me, always saving the best for last! What about an anthology with no less than 13 short stories, and all of them about Vampires? Doesn't sound too bad, huh? One negative thing though - this cover is just. . .weird. And ugly. -
