The Beast Within (VtM Anthology)
Review by Michael Blank, submitted on 9-Oct-2001

I picked up the anthology, "The Beast Within," a few weeks ago at the Atlanta LARP. This is an excelent collection of short stories. Some of the best work I have seen from White Wolf is in this collection. It captures the nature and spirit of the game in every story. It also gives a broad look at the different clans of vampires in the VtM world.

The stories are set in San Francisco and share characters between them. This is the first of three books to be set in San Francisco, the others to be Werewolf and Mage collections.

The one problem that I had was the art. Each story had a picture before it, but they were Tim Bradstreet works which had been used before. I do prefer it to J. Cobb's work, but I would like some new stuff. Other than that, it was great.

As the 20th century evolved, rational man turned to science to explain mythology that had pervaded for thousands of years. How could a man be mistaken for a vampire? How could someone appear to have been the victim of a vampire attack? Science, in time, came back with answers that may surprise you.Anemia
A million fancies strike you when you hear the name: Nosferatu!N O S F E R A T Udoes not die!What do you expect of the first showing of this great work?Aren't you afraid? - Men must die. But legend has it that a vampire, Nosferatu, 'der Untote' (the Undead), lives on men's blood! You want to see a symphony of horror? You may expect more. Be careful. Nosferatu is not just fun, not something to be taken lightly. Once more: beware.- Publicity for Nosferatu in the German magazine Buhne und Film, 1922
