I noticed how my bookshelf is crammed with short story collections and anthologies. It has been a while since I read trough a good short story collection. I used to love them when I was younger. In fact my love of reading and stories in general started with fairytale collections from all over the world.

Most of my pilled up short story collections are urban fantasy and horror with good dose of vampire type characters. I had a phase where collecting vampire themed fiction was a bit of a hobby. Unfortunately while acquiring them I read them scarcely.
