Lesbian vampires — the quintessential bad girls — indulge in their perverse pleasures in this red-hot collection.
The female vampire is so deliciously wicked that her powerful sexual nature was hidden for centuries. But the vampire story has always been one of submerged eroticism. The vampire emerges from the shadows, seduces her intended victim, and feeds on her, defying all rules in her pursuit of pleasure.
In Daughters of Darkness, editor Pam Keesey brings the eroticism of the female vampire front and center with explicit tales from some of the finest contemporary queer writers.
Patrick Califia’s “The Vampire” confounds conventional views of the subject as he uncovers Sapphic bloodlust in the S/M netherworld. Katherine V. Forrest imagines the lesbian vampire cruising the galaxies in search of bed-and-blood partners in the witty sci-fi adventure “O Captain, My Captain.” In “Louisiana: 1850,” Lambda Award-winner Jewelle Gomez delights readers with a curious ménage in the antebellum South.
Also included is the first major lesbian vampire tale, J. Sheridan Le Fanu’s “Carmilla” (1871).
Pam Keesey is well known for her writing on women in horror, including her books Daughters of Darkness, Dark Angels, Women Who Run with the Werewolves, and Vamps: An Illustrated History of the Femme Fatale. She is the editor and publisher of MonsterZine, an online horror movie magazine that, in the words of Dr. Frank C. Baxter of The Mole People (1956), explores the meaning and significance of horror movies in the 21st century. Pam has also worked as a technical writer, a news editor, and as an editor of occult books in Spanish.
Openly erotic and smart, the stories of Best Gay Romance deliver hope and happy endings.
Dale Chase’s “The Early Show” describes the tantalizing flirtation of two writers who share an eccentric habit of showing up early to Sunday matinees to enjoy the promising half-dark of the theater. S.J. Frost’s “No More Mirages” is a tale of romantic destiny set in a dojo, an oasis of bamboo, white mats, and stone sculptures where an actor, bitter from his last break-up, finds himself drawn to a charismatic sensei. And in Rob Rosen’s wonderfully funny “Nudie Blues,” a romance writer discovers a hole in his backyard fence and the hunky new neighbor behind it.
In these sexy, satisfying tales, boy gets boy – and keeps him – despite pesky ex-lovers, cops in pursuit or whatever other obstacles he must face first.

They have analyzed their own communities, and their relationship with the broader society. They are smart, funny, and profound.
