  • Patty Jansen said of the story that:

    'Most of you will know that I wouldn't touch a vampire over-my-dead-body, and am not particularly fond of the trope in fiction either. [...]

    Anyway, Quarantine is a story I purpose-wrote when Russ invited me to contribute to this anthology. I set myself a challenge to see if I could write something about vampires. I was surprised at myself, and pleased, that I succeeded to write a story I was happy with, although I took a SF-nal approach to the theme.'
