Up Close: When the red storm comes by Sarah Smith

I read this story in a copy of Shudder Again (1995) I found in Barcelona’s Gigamesh books. It cost a euro and the card cover is crumbling away piece by piece but I feel it’s a bargain.

The seduction element of the story is what keeps me coming back. It all feels delightfully transgressive. I also like the way she binds history and the vampire myth together refreshing both.

If I like this, I guess I should go and get myself a copy of Twilight, or Emma and vampires.
