    2. “The Other Side of Midnight” by Kim Newman It is nice to see Genevieve again, and she fits the role of private detective very well. There is a beautiful and fitting twist on the Beverly Hillbillies. “Some Velvet Morning” by Nancy Collins This short novella made me pick up the Sonja Blue series, far superior to the Anita Blake series. In this story, Collins makes use of the legend/story of the Blood Countess but tells it from the other side as it were. In some ways, the story is like a fa [...]

    3. It was a good read, definitely different takes on vampires than are normal now. I'd say they're more traditional, but that doesn't really cover it. No explicit sex or gore, although there is plenty of action. Each story is excellent, with the exception of the last, the one by Tanith Lee. If you like her style of writing, it's probably a good one. As usual, I got bored with her word play about 1/3 of the way through. I found all the other stories intriguing, though.

    4. The Vampire Sextette is an anthology that sets out to stray from the same-old tired vampire themes. It accomplishes this goal, the stories are not your run of the mill vampire tales, but only three out of the six thrilled me.The first story, The Other Side of Midnight by Kim Newman, gets off to a slow start and never fully recovers. It is a mishmash of several elements but is basically the tale of a Genevieve, an ancient female vampire, who spends her time as a private investigator in Hollywood. [...]

    5. Woo Hoo! Finally, vampires written by authors who've been doing it for ages and who are far better than most of the dreck being foisted off these days. These are the kinds of vampires a nosferatu snob like moi have sorely missed. And Chelsea Quinn Yarbro has a story in this anthology? Too sweet!

    6. What a load of crap. I feel like this was published in the vampir-craze (was that in 2000?), when every vampire story (good or bad) was published. Cause it was NOT goodFrom the six novella's I only managed to finish one and it had not enough vampire, not enough blood, not enough music, not enough dark, nit anything.I only liked the intro.

    7. The Vampire Sextette is a collection of six novellasIt is edited by Marvin Kaye, and each story is from a different author. The entire book oozes with sex with surprisingly little violence. As far as a book of vampire stories, I thought it was rather weak. I will outline the individual stories below:The Other Side of Midnight by Kim Newman, about a woman vampire private eye in Hollywood seemed a little promising but really turned into kind of a flop. There were some entertaining tidbits, like th [...]

    8. First tale by Kim Newman The Other Side of Midnight - took me a long time to read it. I dug the pop culture references (I have always loved Columbo) but, it was a slow read. Not my favoriteSecond tale by Nancy Collins Some Velvet Morning - WOW! I dig Sonja, and it makes me want to seek out more Collins stories!!Third tale by Brian Stableford Sheena - I enjoyed the story. It had a little bit of a twist, and I liked that.Fourth tale by S.P. Somtow Vanilla Blood - told with court transcripts (and I [...]

    9. REREAD. The theme of this collection was vampires and sex, obviously. To be honest, I expected more out of some of the authors listed, but the book was a good read. "The Other Side of Midnight" by Kim Newman was passable, but relied too much on fake news reports to keep my attention (2 stars out of 5). "Some Velvet Morning" by Nancy Collins featured her Sonja Blue vampire slayer character and whetted my interest in finding those books (4 stars out of 5). "Sheena" by Brian Stableford won't qualif [...]

    10. Another 50/50 anthology of vampire novellas.One was good, four were ok, and the last story was just bad.Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books1 star This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.2 stars This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author.3 stars This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to [...]

    11. I picked up this book at a second hand bookstore with no expectations other than it had to deal with vampires. I’m a sucker for a good old-fashioned vampire story. None of the Twilight fluffy love kind of stories for me. I lust after something I can sink my teeth into. This book included six novellas by some of the best authors in the vampire genre (as of 2000). Each author stayed true to the Bram Stoker genre while adding their own little twist. My favorite story was Vanilla Blood by S. P. So [...]
