Having been burnt recently by professionally promoted 'fanfiction' by well-known authors, I only jumped into this one because P. N. Elrod is among my favorite authors and I trusted her a little more than I might others.

While I cannot say I "loved" any of the stories, I was right to trust Elrod because I felt that no story in this anthology was disrespectful to what I consider the true spirit of the original "Dracula" and thus I am not disappointed.

Not really any of the tales are quite worth, to me, raving about. I didn't like the historical name-dropping. Barrett's "A Most Electrifying Evening" and DeWeese's "An Essay in Containment" struck me as attempting to be clever but only succeeding in being pointless.

The story by Elrod and Bennett as well as Yarbro were, to be expected, well done. Despite my dislike of the name-dropping, I did like how Yarbro referenced Jack the Ripper who held his own rein of terror just a few years before the events in "Dracula." Nye's tale amused me.

I'm still debating what I think about "Curtain Call," however. I disliked the use of Stoker as a player, but I liked the concept of it. So, jury's still out there.

Otherwise, only Kilpatrick's "Berserker" stood out to me. The rest were average and kind of forgettable, but I thought hers unique and the most enjoyable of the anthology.
