Heart's Desires And Dark Embraces
by Margaret L. Carter
ISBN: 1-59279-138-7 (Electronic)
ISBN: 1-59279-900-0 (Paperback)
From the pen of Margaret L. Carter..."When I first read Dracula at the age of twelve, my spontaneous reaction was to wonder how the vampire saw the events in which he was portrayed as the villain. One of my first stories, at age thirteen, was a 33-page, single-spaced saga from the viewpoint of a man in the process of transforming into a vampire. I've always found the non-human perspective, as well as relationships between human and non-human persons, fascinating.
"The tales in this collection span the past ten years of my writing career. Most can be described as romances, and all involve love and passion in some form. Here you will encounter vampires, elves, ghosts, and at least one human-monster hybrid. The vampire stories in the first half of the book belong to an ongoing series based on 'Vanishing Breed,' a story by my husband in my first anthology, Curse of the Undead (1970). 'Vanishing Breed' (which also appears in Tomorrow Sucks, edited by Greg Cox, still in print) postulates that the creatures we know as vampires belong to an alien species secretly living among us. You can get better acquainted with them in my novels, Dark Changeling, Sealed in Blood, and Crimson Dreams, and two novellas, 'Night Flight' and 'Tall, Dark, and Deadly' (which stars Claude from 'Voice from the Void').
"In the words of Count Dracula, 'Welcome…Enter freely and of your own will!'"

Excerpt from "The Crystal Tesseract"...
Her heart pounded against her ribs, her lungs aching. She tripped. Pain shot through her right ankle, and she tumbled onto the hard-packed earth.
At the same instant, a neon-green flash burst on her sight. She rolled over to look back at Julian and the beasts.
A swirling green haze filled her vision. Through it, as if through several feet of murky water, she saw the wavering shapes of the dogs. And something else, something that hurt her eyes to stare at. Something with lashing tentacles, too many to count, that twined around the mongrel and hauled it into the air.
An insectile buzz assaulted her ears. Her head felt ready to burst. She glimpsed the other two dogs turning tail and fleeing. Emitting sparks of multicolored light, the writhing mass of tendrils vanished with its captive…
