Vampires: The Recent Undead - Tanith Lee, Tanya Huff, Michael Marshall Smith, Holly Black, Nancy Kilpatrick, Tina Rath, Kelley Armstrong, Charles de Lint, Carrie Vaughn, Caitlín R. Kiernan, Susan Sizemore, J.A. Konrath, Charlaine Harris, Chelsea Quinn Yarbro, Kim Newman, Karen Russell, Conrad William Short stories, or no real quality or interest, just ok. They read IMHO like cast off stories published to fit the current vamp craze.
