I heard it in broad Strine accents while the narrative evoked images of dry bush and flies Lady Yang s lament by Penelope LoveImagine a vampire vignette from Deadwood set in Australia focusing on the Chinese communitySome details need polishing like the orchestra I assume this means the people run for their lives I assume they left their instruments behind only to spontaneously perform musical accompaniment for Lady Yang in the street or the bush or wherever the final confrontation takes placeOverall an enjoyable story it s interesting to try to climb inside non European mythologyEditing and DesignEven before starting to study editing at university errors in books seemed to leap off the page breaking the story flow Errors were as minor as lower case for a name Or nosferatu at the beach in Russell s introduction but what really annoyed me were the ellipses of which no two were the same I can t show any examples because the box that breaks up the three little dots comprising an ellipsis ENDS THE POST AND CUTS OFF THE REMAINDER OF THE TEXT Kermit yell while waving floppy armsFiction publishing tradition dictates specific design features including indented paragraphs without additional leading line spacing between paragraphs while electronic texts should use left ustification text should reach the left side of the page allowing for agged ends of lines on the right side Dead Red Heart s PDF review copy complies however there were other formatting issues with the PDF copy that could be improvedI haven t seen the paper version but I d recommend looking at a paper copy before choosing your format I suspect the paper version is preferable hopefully with correct ellipses as long as you can read the small print Besides the paper is an ARTEFACT that can be autographed by the lovely authors with their willing pensIn summaryDead Red Heart is an interesting mostly engaging assortment of short stories seeking to portray varying interpretations of vampire mythology The sense of place this is Australia is the one consistent flavour of this anthology I recommend this anthology for fans of vampire fiction especially readers overseas who would like an alien setting and Australian readers who would like something uniuely ours I m also putting a reuest in for a second anthology one using The tide as a theme and premise for the world with stories telling different yet overlapping tales progressing through this fictional history Looks pointedly at Russell It s always interesting to see how other authors approached the anthology theme Dead Red Heart was no different There was a wide range of stories with a wide range of vampires As with any anthology not all were to my taste but I simply umped ahead to the next story I ve started reading my contributor copy of this great anthology I m so pleased to have a story among so many great writers What I ve read so far has been excellentFinished now A couple of the stories didn t work for me but that only shows the amazing breadth of yarns in this book Some fantastic stories and so many angles on vampiric lore new and old Well worth your time 45 starsI m not a huge vampire fan and it seems a difficult task to come up with an original take on vampires but there were several outstanding and original stories in this anthology There were a few that I thought weren t uite up to the high standard of the others not so much in writing but ust in terms of a grippingoriginal story but on the whole I loved the experience of reading this book Special mention has to go to Jane Routley for Bats Penelope Love s Lady Yang s Lament Angela Slatter s Sun Falls Damon Cavalchini s Renfield s Wife Joanne Anderton s The Sea at Night all stories I really enjoyed and Jane and Damon get points for awesome takes on the vampire myth There were so many other great stories though highly recommend reading it A Terrific Selection Of Vampire Short selection of vampire short inspired by Australia From urban to rural settings using mythologies from Aboriginal legend to Chinese vampires in the 1850s goldfields the stories have breadth and depth of imagination If you re looking for something a bit different in the vampire genre you re bound to find it here Dead Red Heart is the perfect gift book for the hard to please reader there is literally something in
Here For Everyone From for everyone From comedy to blood curdling terror from giant mutant possums to heart warming love stories there will be something you ll enjoyAs I don t normally read short stories or Anthologies I am uite excited to discover one of the main reasons why I really should read this style often authors Lots and lots of authors Many of whom were unknown to me Because of DRH I ve got two new authors that I ust can t wait to read of And it s only fair that I have picked up two new favourites really I loved their world building I enjoyed their characters the writing style was well developed and the stories themselves I ust can t get enough of So my two favourite reads in this anthology are Out of the Grave by Amanda Pillar and Coming Home by #Kathryn Hore Both are stories I would love to read in full novel form and I am certainly # Hore Both are stories I would love to read in full novel form and I am certainly to be keeping my eyes out for further works from these twoOne of the most delightful things to reading this as my first anthology of short stories since I was a kid was the blurb about the story by each writer having that extra insight into the story is wonderfulAlthough the theme of Dead Red Heart is Australian Vampires each author has tackled the idea in a very different manner Where normally you find anthologies perhaps have a similar theme but certainly in the same genre DRH doesn t I do wish some of the stories had come with warning labels or at least little genre icons at the start of each story as some where a little thriller than I d normally read But each was well written and if I did skip the occasional story as it started to get a little too much for me I still enjoyed the majority of themThe foundation story is Tide is a fascinating concept The basic idea being vampires coming to Australia as boat people claiming refugee status from fear of slaughter in their primary eastern European home lands Each author then gets a newspaper article to write Some of the results are predicable but overall tide is amusing and shocking and all the stories flow together to make a very interesting storyI harp on but I was so delighted by DRH overall it s a wonderfully enjoyable showcase of Australian authors and a wonderfully diverse range of stories if you thought vampires had been done to death then you haven t met any of the creative Aussie talent in Dead Red Hearthttpwwwfangtasticcomaubookss.

REVIEW ¼ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ð Russell B. FarrDeans and Truants justice An interesting little tale Did I mention I likeustice Kissed by the sun by Jodi CleghornStrong themes of dysfunctional family and teenage romance cross over into the vampire genre in this story Exploration of story and characters occur while events unfold The setting was very much contemporary urban Australia Enjoyable especially if you re into teens romance and vampires Bats by Jane RoutleyAn aging actress struggles with alcoholism her partner replacing her with a younger model and her career at a cross roads A vampire frightens her then she wonders if this could be the answer to her problems This one is a must read Black Heart by Joanna FayA vampire tired of immortality comes to Australia to grieve and die Very short this story is most notable for its prose like Now her flesh its frozen time unbinding into looped and knotted threads forced her to suck air like a fish in a dried river bed Renfield s Wife by Damon CavalchiniThe point of view character is a human who willingly serves his vampire mistress although she is animal like than traditional vampire in her muteness and relationships Developed as an interesting possibly uniue story I particularly enjoyed the unexpected ending Listening to Tracy by Jen WhiteTold in the present and as post Cyclone Tracy historical remembrances this is an exploration of those who inhabit Darwin A mystery with character development this is an enjoyable read Breaking the drought by Jay CaselbergThis is a dreamtime story Australian Aboriginal mythology Well told my only concern is that of appropriation Jay looks very white to me Children of the cane by Jason NahrungCharacterisation shines in this short story however a trigger warning for pedophilia is appropriate The end was very distasteful and I thought a young adolescent mowing the lawn was unlikely although not impossible To explain further would spoil the story The sea at night by Joanne AndertonGood characterisation and descriptive prose combine to present an exploration of the Australian cultural landscape beaches are prominent in this aftermath of loss Sky in the morning by Sonia MarconThis little horror story has a twist I visualised in Ray Harryhausen s stop motion medium I expected the ending but was entertained by the ourney Taking it for the team by Tracie McBrideNarcissistic footballers are probably my least favourite people group so I felt like cheering this little number All that glisters by Pete KempshallDetermined to succeed financially after failing socially in earlier life Hanson plots a take over at Markham s expense but Markham has a few secrets of his own The vampire in this story is uintessentially Australian May this vampire meet bloodsucking mining execs The rider by Martin LivingsTelepathy of sorts couples with the vampire trope to create uncertainty and suspense Vitality by George IvanoffThe opening scene totally lost me a vampire hung two human bodies from a hills hoist to bleed out over the ground He was supposed to be full but going to this extreme is like a human taking time to decorate the backyard with the unwanted remnants of a mealThis story seems to be a snapshot in the life of Michael from the Vampire Diaries except that the vampire drinking vampire s blood or the super supernatural trope was omitted Other details didn t add up either this story struck me as intended to be horror first without a focus on plot and plausibility Coming home by Kathryn HoreA story of two people separated by illness but united by love this story was engaging although I felt the opening scene didn t uite dovetail with what followed It seemed two separate stories were pushed together to create a
Whole Where A Paredwhere a pared opening would have served better Once the protagonist is inside the house the story is fairly consistent and engaging characters choices is fairly consistent and engaging characters choices and present are sometimes surprising yet believable The little red man by Raymond GatesThis is another Aboriginal vampire story focusing on what appear to be two white Australians going camping one enthusiastic while the other longs for the comforts of home My concerns about appropriation have been mentioned before but this story had added plot holes If Karen so desperately wants to go home why does she act against her desires and common sense when things go wrong I didn t buy it Deathborn light by Helen StubbsDefinitely the best of the pregnant vampire stories with character work and development If you move past the idea of a cold blooded presumably dead creature getting pregnant and having a human baby then it s a good story The life stealer by Donna Maree HansonAnother Aboriginal based vampire story the point of view character Jake is part Aborigine working as a ranger how apropros while engaging with traditional yet contemporary tribes #people I felt this was the most appropriate of the Aboriginal based stories because the characters are mostly Aboriginal in # I felt this was the most appropriate of the Aboriginal based stories because the characters are mostly Aboriginal in suspenseful tale Behind the black mask by Jacob EdwardsOf all the Aboriginal based vampire stories this was my least favourite The prose was verbose overblown although admittedly in character for the storyteller The narrative felt like smoke rudely blown in my face interspersed with indecipherable comments from Aboriginal characters This was also the second re imagining of Ned Kelly s capture in this anthology Interview with the Jiangshi by Anne MokI assume the title of this story is a play off Anne Rice s novel but only having watched the movie nuances may be lost on me The historical parallels with the Buckland riots also went straight over my head until reading the afterwordApril and Jackson attend a convention for vampires on South Bank in Melbourne Jackson is mistaken for human due to an absence of fang in Chinese vampire style Humans protest outside while conflicts arise inside the conventionBeing a Melbournian I was olted out of the story with a sense of Wait what when South Bank appears to be adjacent to China Town instead of a brisk walk of about twenty minutes for the closest point double that from the Convention Centre This was still an enjoyable story White and red in the black by Lisa L HannettThis is a story of graziers in the outback coupled with vampires instead of the usual hazards Vampires are reframed as another Australian plague somewhat like rabbits although dangerous like packs of dingos hunting humans and livestock Dialogue is so collouial.
