Jeanne Cavelos began her professional life as an astrophysicist, working in the Astronaut Training Division at NASA’s Johnson Space Center. Her love of science fiction sent her into a career in publishing. Jeanne has since left New York to pursue her own writing career. She is the author of The Science of Star Wars, The Science of The X-Files, and the Babylon 5 novel The Shadow Within. Over all, the only thing I didn't like is that all the stories are about Van Helsing the man. No adventures, really, and so many of them focus on his wife and child, leaving other ground uncovered. Still for fans of Dracula or anthology lovers, highly recommended.

Both Dracula and Van Helsing have become icons: the vampire and the vampire hunter. Yet while the character of Dracula has been endlessly examined, Van Helsing is arguably one of the most well-known yet least explored characters in literature.

The tales feature Van Helsing from different perspectives hero,villain,mad man, puritan and so forth. Some tales live up to the character who is the arch nemesis of the vampire but in some we see but a whimsical caricature of this interesting character. The sole reason why I picked up this book was the highly entertaining 'Abraham's Boys' by Joe Hill which featured in 20th Century Ghosts and apart from this tale, I found very few engrossing ones. Here are the ones i liked : Hero Dust, Remember Me & Fantasy Room. These were the only ones that made a lasting impression on m. .

When purchasing this book, I was interested to see so many different author's takes on one of the most elusive and interesting characters in vampire fiction. There is a wide range of takes on the character, with a great many centering around one of two women: either his insane wife (the vast majority) or Mina Harker (two or three). This son is also the focal point of quite a few, but by far my favorite story in the entire anthology is the first one, the Screaming by J.A. Knrath. It is a very delicious little tale and highly recommended.

A complete list of the stories follows-

*** The Screaming by J.A. Knrath *** Poison in the Darkness by Rita Oakes *** Infestation in the Walls by Thomas Tessier *** Anna Lee by Kathe Koja *** Venus and Mars by Christopher Golden *** The Power of Waking by Nina Kiriki Hoffman *** The Life Imprisoned by William D. Carl *** The Tomb of Fog and Flowers by C. Dean Anderson *** So Far From Us in All Ways by Chris Roberson *** Sideshow by Thomas F. Monteleone *** Hero Dust by Kristine Kathryn Rusch *** Remember Me by Tanith Lee *** A Letter From the Asylum by Kris Dikeman *** My Dear Madame Mina by Lois Tilton *** Ardelis by Sarah Kelderman *** Abraham's Boys by Joe Hill *** The Black Wallpaper by Kim Antieau *** Brushed in Blackest Silence by Brian Hodge *** Empty Morning by Steve Rasnic Tem and Melanie Tem *** Fantasy Room by Adam-Troy Castro *** Origin of Species by A.M. Dellamonica

Over all, the only thing I didn't like is that all the stories are about Van Helsing the man. No adventures, really, and so many of them focus on his wife and child, leaving other ground uncovered.

Still for fans of Dracula or anthology lovers, highly recommended.

These stories, all by different authors, are all good. They are well written, and all have varying stories about Can Helsing. Great book.

This is an excellent book for anyone who loves Van Helsing, Vampyres or just Scifi in general. I checked this book out at the library and loved it, so I had to own a copy of this. I bought a used copy, it just came today and it's in great shape. So, bravo Amazon!

This means a lot coming from me because generally speaking I do not like short stories. This was thoroughly entertaining, well written, innovative, interesting. I would recommend it to others without reservation. I really enjoyed it.

What can I say? It’s great. Entertaining, thought-provoking in the way each writers sees the good doctor. Some perhaps more disturbing than others because of the way certain iconic beliefs are torn down and new theories constructed in their places. According to the printing history, this anthology was first released in 2004, so my only question is: Why did I just find it now, on the rack of a discount store? It’s going into my collection, right next to all the Dracula novels I’ve collected over the years.

See what little gems you can find in unexpected places?

ALmost all of the stories fell within the theme of the book. Very few were just standard vampire hunters, and some like Chris Golden's and Joe Hill's were very much outside the box. While more traditional than some of the others, the Monteleone story very much captured the turn of the century sense of wonder and other-worldly aspect of Van Helsing's mission--and had a GREAT twist at the end.
This is a fun book. Get it.
Scoreboard Bleeding
While there are some standout stories (Thomas Tessier, Nina Hoffman, Joe Hill), there are also some clunkers. One author appears to think that "Van" is Van Helsing's first name, and many others appear to have little to do with Van Helsing other than having his name appended (a few don't even bother with that, and merely present generic vampire hunter stories).
Extremely uneven.
As with any collection of short stories, I liked some more than others. But it was a good collection with lots of variety & a great subject. I really enjoyed it.
