Comments: Ah the Mammoth Books of . The great thing about these puppies is that they are indeed mammoth. Now, some may think that the marketing campaign is a bit tacky, but hey, this is all about value. Now of course you wouldn't see the 'Mammoth Book of Rimbaud' or the 'Giant Book of Boccaccio', but give me all these bloodsuckers for ten bucks and I'm a happy camper. Don't even get me started on the 'Mammoth Book of Erotica', now that one's great, although difficult to hide unless you have a Mammoth Mattress.

I really like the Dracula painting on this cover. It's incredibly well done. It's even got a foreword by Bram Stoker's great-nephew. Did I ever tell you that my great grandfather's uncle's best friend's chimney sweep was Poliodori's brother's barber?
