One of my squares for this past year's r/fantasy book bingo was Five Short Stories and since I was doing an all vampire themed card, I read some vampire shorts for it! I actually have a couple of vampire themed anthologies (because I'm me, so of course I do), but all of these are from … Continue reading Mini Reviews: Vampire Short Fiction
