Overall, I can't recommend the quality of the writing for this anthology. It was the early '90s and gaming wanted so badly to be a multimedia phenomenon. They grabbed whoever they could for TV and literary tie-ins, and The Beast Within falls squarely into the field of "I know a guy who plays Vampire and wants to write." In the '90s, it was often one or the other -- either you got someone with literary talent who'd barely played the game, or someone who was dedicated to the game and had no idea what they were doing. And yet, even 20+ years later, I remember one story in this anthology that always stood out, and so I never threw away my copy of The Beast Within.

It's a story involving a Malkavian... or maybe it isn't. Because one crazy, frenetic author took to heart the fact that there's a clan full of insane vampires, and three or four power-hungry clans who can give subliminal commands, wipe memories, and reprogram personalities whole-cloth. If you think about that for more than a minute, you'll realize what a nightmare that is. The protagonist of the story is some poor, brave sap who's going undercover for his sire, and everything else is suspect. You realize you've got an unreliable narrator sometime around where he says he's got "an autographed picture of the Virgin Mary with her phone number on the back" and the story that emerges actually does justice to the "fun, crazy Malkavian" concept that so many players want to pull off and so few do. To me, that's what good gaming fiction is all about -- inspiring gamers to step up their game and improve the storytelling in their own group. So kudos to that author... and may Stewart Wieck RIP.

There's really not much to say about this book and I can do this without spoilers.

The book is 405 pages and it's an anthology. Some of the stories are just okay but some are total stink-bombs that I could not finish and was forced to skip over them because the story was just so boring or the writing was just so bad that it was uninteresting and couldn't hold my attention.

Also several of these stories appear in other White Wolf publications so a few times I found I was re-reading stories that I had already read before.

It's not a horrible book, but it's not great and it's just under the bar of what I consider "okay" in the literary world.

Two stars is the best I can give this book.

Only ten stories, I was hoping it would have at least one per clan. If you like the role playing game Vampire, especially those tricky Tremeres, you may really like this book. I'm a storyteller for a group who does tabletop Vampire so I found the stories interesting and inspiring both. My favorites were "The voice of the hummingbird," "descent" and "expendable". The last story isn't very clear about who the main character is or why they are doing what they are doing. I'd recommend it to fans of the game but not really to those interested in vampire literature in general.
Nuliax
The first White Wolf novel. It is in fact anthology, this time based around the Vampire game. You get different stories that look at a few different characters, some that had been mentioned in the game in passing. So, a few insights into on the ground vampire society and how they work within and try and avoid their own rules.

The first story is a mass of cliches you'd expect from a teenage girl--15-year-old poet runs away from home, makes a smash at a poetry slam, and meets the vampire who turns out to be her soulmate. Eeegh. The writing doesn't get much better, either.
Laizel
A great collection of stories set in White Wolf's world of darkness. Each tale is set to focus on a different clan of vampire, and is a great introduction to anyone interested in playing Vampire the Masquerade role-playing game.
