Sisters of the Night - Martin H. Greenberg, Barbara Hambly, Nina Kiriki Hoffman, Michael Kurland, Tanith Lee, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Larry Niven, Dean Wesley Smith, Melanie Tem, Diana L. Paxson, Deborah Wheeler, Jane Yolen, Pat Cadigan, George Alec Effinger, M. John Harrison, Steve Tem As with any anthology, I liked some of the stories more than others, but overall this was a quite good collection of stories of female vampires. The fourteen selections were all exclusive to this volume, so I hadn't read them before (with the exception of the (long) Niven selection, which was later published in one of his Ringworld novels - not my favorite). There's also a high-tier collection of authors:
