Fangs for the Mammaries
Esther Friesner
Baen, $7.99, 422 pages, ISBN: 9781439133927
reviewed by Barry Hunter

While we wait for the next volume of Friesner’s highly entertaining Chicks series (CHICKS AHOY!), she has gone into the vast landscape, known as Suburbia to present us with a new set of mammaries, I mean, memories to hold us over until that time.

Joining Esther this time around are Jody Lynn Nye, Sarah A. Hoyt, K.D. Wentworth, Laura J. Underwood, Kevin Andrew Murphy and others letting us know how the vampires have adjusted to modern day living.

Jody Lynn Nye’s "Overbite" opens the volume with a trip to the orthodontist. "If Music Be the Food of Love…" David Freer shows us how teenage daughters can be a pain to fathers, even if they are vampires. A group of "Night" students go on a field trip in "Miss White-Hands’s Class Goes Shopping" by K. K. Wentworth. Other stories involve a beauty queen, circus performers, and other assorted characters.

Esther Freisner has a talent for bringing out the best in her contributors and this is no exception. Her entry into this collection says it all, this anthology is "Long in the Tooth".
