BLOOD LITE

...a collection of entertaining tales that puts the fun back into dark fiction, with ironic twists and tongue-in-cheek wit to temper the jagged edge.

Charlaine Harris reveals the dark side of going green, when a quartet of die-hard environmentalists hosts a fundraiser with a gory twist in "An Evening with Al Gore"...In an all-new Dresden Files story from Jim Butcher, when it comes to tracking deadly paranormal doings, there's no such thing as a "Day Off" for the Chicago P.D.'s wizard detective, Harry Dresden...Sherrilyn Kenyon turns a cubicle-dwelling MBA with no life into a demon-fighting seraph with one hell of an afterlife in "Where Angels Fear to Tread"...Celebrity necromancer Jaime Vegas is headlining a sold-out séance tour, but behind the scenes, a disgruntled ghost has a bone to pick, in Kelley Armstrong's "The Ungrateful Dead." Plus tales guaranteed to get under your skin — in a good way — from

So let the blood flow and laughter reign — because when it comes to facing our deepest, darkest fears, a little humor goes a long way!

Review:

"This toothsome anthology of 21 funny-scary stories from members of the Horror Writers Association arrives just in time for Halloween. On the humorous end, Matt Venne's 'Elvis Presley and the Bloodsucker Blues' recreates Presley's voice with pitch perfect swagger and sets the record straight on how he really died, while Charlaine Harris's 'An Evening with Al Gore' depicts a novel way to deal with environmental criminals; both tales are truly outstanding. In a creepier vein, Steven Savile's 'Dear Prudence' finds a conflicted man repeatedly revising a note where he details gory plans for his significant other, and Nancy Holder's 'I Know Who You Ate Last Summer' features stomach-churning 'rock star cannibals.' Big names like Jim Butcher and Sherrilyn Kenyon will have comic horror fans grabbing this anthology off the shelves." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

In the tradition of "Shaun of the Dead" and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" comes a frightfest of horrifying and hilarious stories from members of the Horror Writers Association, featuring "New York Times"-bestselling authors Charlain Harris, Jim Butcher, Kelly Armstrong, and others.
