Dead but Not Forgotten
Stories From the World of Sookie StackhouseBook - 2014
"Sookie Stackhouse attracted vampires, werewolves, and various otherworldly creatures. Even fellow authors fell in love with her and Charlaine Harris's "magical and mysterious twist on traditional vampire stories" (Houston Chronicle). And though Sookie's story has come to an end, these tales of her and the characters who populated her world will give you a different perspective on the series you thought you knew... In "Wing and a Prayer," Rachel Caine sends Kenya Jones and Kevin Pryor to Dallas on a search for a not-too-bright robbery/murder suspect--who just happens to be connected to a ring of criminals led by a dangerous vampire. Witch Amelia Broadway decides to test a folk legend about witches being able to communicate with the winds, but she isn't prepared for the stormy consequences, in Seanan McGuire's "Knit a Sweater out of Sky." While Sookie and Bill Compton are in Dallas, a Food Network crew unexpectedly shows up to shoot at Merlotte's, but what they're really cooking up is a deadly surprise for Bill, in Jeff Mariotte's "Taproot." In "Widower's Walk" by MaryJanice Davidson, Eric Northman is passing through twenty-third-century Baton Rouge, which, for the first time in an age, doesn't have a vampire king but rather a shifter queen--from the famed and formidable Stackhouse-Merlotte clan... "Blending action, romance, and comedy, Harris has created a fully functioning world so very close to our own, except, of course, for the vamps and other supernatural creatures" (The Toronto Star). And now fifteen of today's most popular authors have come along for the ride"-- Provided by publisher.
