Read full description of the books Z upířích archivů I:I've been on a vampire kick and it was something of a revelation to be reminded that Dracula was not the first vampire story. I knew the origin of the eastern European count who tortured captives as well as military leaders to posted heads on pikes and so forth, but actual published vampire works that pre-date Dracula I did not know. So, from the description, I thought this was a collection of old collected short stories and novellas. While many of these stories where old or set in the 19th century, they were not authentic pre-Dracula tales. A diverse collection ranging from Ray Bradbury's stark mid-western boarding house with a vampire living upstairs to an English millionairess in Italy who didn't realize her doctor was keeping her alive with blood, there were creepy little stories and creepy longer adventures. None of these made my blood boil. As is the case with many short stories, they are too short to develop any feeling for the characters and thus, it is easy to remain aloof. Still, an entertaining read. I won't be purchasing volumes 2 & 3.
