In the mid-90's, I read a wonderful collection of stories that I've been trying to find since. The book was titled something like Year's Best Science Fiction & Fantasy Stories, I believe published in some time in the 1980's or early 1990's.
Some of the stories I remember included:
- A women tries to convince a vampire to transform her as a way to cure her HIV infection.
- A man with the power to control minds comes upon a house populated by other strange characters, including a sentient radio, an old man with a lightning bolt tattoo who flies around the world to keep the Earth's plates stitched together, and a woman in the attic who uncontrollably shape-shifts into the love of whoever she talks to.
- A story in the afterlife, where people are endlessly walking down a path, and two characters begin unlocking the subtle code of the arrows inscribed on the ground.
Any help tracking this book down would be greatly appreciated!
