Fangs for the Mammaries (2010) is the third Fantasy anthology in the Supernatural Suburbia series, following Strip Mauled. The previous volume covered Werefolk in the suburbs. This collection looks at Vampires outside the cities.

- Overbite by Jody Lynn Nye tells of a human passing as a vampire.

- "In Music Be the Food of Love" by David Freer relates the trials of a vampire with a wayward daughter.

- Soccer Mom SmackDown by Julia S. Mandala confronts a vampire mother with a girl who bullies her son.

- Tecate for Hecate by Kevin Andrew Murphy takes a magician to Hecate for help, but he is a little short on the bottles of beer.

- Miss White-Hands's Class Goes Shopping by K. D. Wentworth reveals the events of a night class field trip to a shopping mall.

- A Matter of Blood by Sarah A. Hoyt provides Agnes with a greater understanding of her boss.

- Sarah Bailey and the Texas Beauty Queen by Lee Martindale shows the advantages of a good double kick.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Here is the toothsome sequel of sorts to Witch Way to the Mall and Strip Mauled, two of the funniest anthologies in recent years. The first focused on spell-casters in modern settings, specifically suburbia; the second shone the spotlight on werewolves in the midst; now we get the low down on life in the `burbs for the undead.
Each author was allowed/encouraged to reset the parameters of vampiric reality afresh, so do not look or hope for consistency in details. Some are born vamps, some are made vamps, and some have vampness thrust upon them, to paraphrase Twelfth Night. Some authors take the laws of physics seriously; others are more concerned with social dynamics. Narrative styles and themes change, but one thing is constant: it's all about laughing your way to a happy ending. Puns and allusions abound, and several authors continue with characters introduced in the previous anthologies. 20 stories here, well worth your dollars. Here are some highlights:
"Overbite" by Jody Lyn Nye concerns the unlikely friendship between Delilah, a teen vampire with new braces and Jim, the human son of a dentist who caters to the special needs of the nightfolk.
"If Music Be the Food of Love ..." by Dave Freer describes how difficult it can be to be the undead father of a permanent teenager. Let me tell you, it's tough, even if your best friend is a mad scientist named Hellsing with a troubling teen of his own.
Julia S. Mandala's "Soccer Mom Smackdown" is about one of the unwillingly turned - as a vampire, Louise cannot properly engage in the suburban lifestyle, but when her young son is being bullied, well, she has to do something! Unfortunately, the bully's mom models her life after Buffy the Vampire-Slayer. The funniest part of this story is the bit about popular names for suburban kids.

This book has quite a few cute vampire stories in it. Some are smiles, some giggles & a couple are laugh out load funny. There are a couple that may be "grisly" to some readers. I did not like the one about the noisy neighbors but other than that one, I enjoyed this Halloween book.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
After reading Witch Way to the Mall (I gave it a 5* rating) I was a bit disappointed in this follow up collection. Most of the stories are so so with a perfunctory and somewhat predictable examination of some aspect of how vampire magic fits in with the real world. I realize each of the stories were developed by different authors, but after the nth time it gets dull hearing about the wonders of SPF 2000 sunscreen as a plot device.

A few stories that I'd rate as really really good: "Soccer Mom Smackdown" by Julie Mandala really hit home with this suburban parent, along with a lovely cinematic reference ending. I also enjoyed Dave Freer's "If Music Be The Food of Love" - a pretty good next generation yarn about Dracula and the Van Helsings coming to terms with their children's relationship. "Sarah "Baily and the Texas Beauty Queen" looked at vampires who live off of emotional frustration - quite a reasonable explanation. I'd rate it as OK. I enjoyed editor Friesner's own "Long in the Tooth". It's a fireside comfort tale with had a nice New England feel to it. And Robin Wayne Bailey's "Trampire" was lyrical and lightly erotic - it reminded me of the sort of thing that Spider Robinson might pull off at Callahan's.

On the downside, stories like "Tecate for Hectate", "Vampless" and to a lesser extent "Family Matters" meandered and fell flat as did "Stick or Treat" and Overbite with their take on outsiders fitting in. "Bella and the Flying Lugosis" was too pyrotechnical at the end and it lacked drama because you knew the protagonist had the upper hand.
