Death’s Excellent Vacation

Previous: Wolfsbane and Mistletoe | Next: Home Improvement: Undead Edition

It really can be an endless summer—if you’re immortal. Though a vampire would be ill-advised to take a cruise to Bermuda, the possibilities for getting away from it all—and maybe snacking on some unsuspecting tourist—are many…

With thirteen tales—including a weekend getaway in Mississippi for Sookie Stackhouse and her vampire friend Pam—Harris and Kelner bring together a stellar collection of tour guides who offer vacations frightening, funny, and touching…for the fanged, the furry, the demonic, and the grotesque.


“Readers will find this collection a great sampler for discovering authors they’ll want to follow.”
