Home Improvement: Undead Edition edited by Charlaine Harris

I love these anthologies! Goodreads description: 
The editors of the New York Times bestselling Death's Excellent Vacation bring home a new collection...with a never-before- published Sookie Stackhouse story! There's nothing like home renovation for finding skeletons in the closet or otherwordly portals in the attic. Now, for any homeowner who's ever wondered, "What's that creaking sound?" or fans of "how to" television who'd like a little unreality mixed in with their reality shows, editors Charlaine Harris and Toni L. P. Kelner return with an all-new collection of the paranormal perils of Do-It-Yourself. Sookie Stackhouse resides in these pages, in a never-before-published story by #1 New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris. And New York Times bestselling authors Patricia Briggs, James Grady, Heather Graham, Melissa Marr, and nine other outstanding writers have constructed more frightening and funny fixer-upper tales guaranteed to shake foundations and rattle readers' pipes.

I have really enjoyed all the books of anthologies that have been edited by Charlaine Harris and Toni L.P. Kelner.  They find some great authors and set up a theme where these authors write little short stories about the theme.  This book did not let me down.  In fact, one story made me want to go out and read one of the authors series! I loved the humor in this book. 

I will say the Sookie Stackhouse short story was OK.  That is probably one of the main reasons that someone is going to buy this book.  I kinda would like to see Harris write a short story about something other then Sookie.  But she only has two more books so one can only hope.

Can't wait to see what the next anthology will be about!!  Here are the other anthologies everyone should check out!

  1. I read some of this book but I didn't really like it. I guess short stories are not really my thing. I got it for the Sookie story, which wasn't that great. I am glad that you liked it.
