    Dieses Buch beinhaltet eine beachtliche Sammlung von Kurzgeschichten, die alle in der Welt von Ravenloft spielen. Es werden verschiedene Charaktere der unterschiedlichen Schreiber von Ravenloft Geschichten vorgestellt. Es ist eine super Einführung in die Realm und bringt insofern auch noch zusätzlichen zum Lesespass eine gute Beurteilungsmöglichkeit der Autoren für den Leser. Ich habe mittlerweile P.N. Elrod als meine Lieblingsautorin ausgemacht, die mit " I, Strahd" und "The war against Azrael" zwei absolut spitzen Vampirgeschichten geschrieben hat. Doch auch die anderen Autoren können überzeugen. Die Geschichten sind unterschiedlich im Gehalt an Aktion und Spannung, aber eigentlich alle gut. Man sollte trotz allem als erstes "Vampires of the Mists" lesen um den Plot, in dem die gesammten Geschichten spielen, besser verstehen zu können.

    In Ravenloft's first (and only, to date) short story anthology, we receive a wide variety of tales, some showcasing established talent: P.N. Elrod, J. Robert King, Chet Williamson, Elaine Bergstrom, and James Lowder. Others are a preview of talent yet-to-come: Gene DeWeese, Andria (Hayday) Cardarelle, William W. Connors, and Mark Anthony.However, among these creme-de-la-creme, we also had stories from some newcomers who have yet to strut their stuff in an RL novel, but who have established track records in other worlds (Elaine Cunningham, Jeff Grubb, Roger E. Moore, and Kate Novak) and those whose first visit to Ravenloft has thus far been their only time in-print for a TSR world, some deservedly.The collection is marvelous, with many of the newcomers showing they have what it takes, sometimes even making the senior authors' attempts pale in comparison. However, among all the gems in this book, we find those whose endings seem rushed or are just poor attempts. I won't name names, so as not to offend, but I can say that careful readers and devoted fans can pick out the good from the rushed.The best examples from this book, IMNSHO, though, were "The Briar at the Window" (though the ending was a bit rushed), "The Freak", "Caretaker", "Objects d'Art", and "The Judgment of abd-al-Mamat". I highly recommend it.

    In nigh-perfect condition. The spine is slightly broken (it opens to one page at a 180 degree angle) but I don't know if that was me or shipping. I have seen no marks whatsoever.The stories are amazing! Anyone who loves classic 2nd edition AD&D writing and horror will love this book <3!

    Excellent book, if your a RAVENLOFT novel fan then I would definitely recommend this book, its a series of short stories some good and some great, this book is worth the purchase price alone for its last story titled "The Caretaker" which is a story about Strahd and its excellent.

    I love Ravenloft Novels, but this one is the absolute worst. I will destroy it before I pass this one on to someone else. This book is a few hours of your life that you will never get back.
