    Witty short stories with amusing dark fantasy horror

    With this anthology I'm not going to try to give a short synopsis of each story, as the stories are so short I don't want to give anything away. There are many authors in here I have never heard of, then there are a few I have. These stories were all short segments and great for reading in brief moments when I need a book fix and can't read a whole story. Or even between books.

    But as a few of these stories where great fun there where a few that didn't click with me. I have to mention a few of the stories where to short. I felt as I was just getting a scene of a bigger picture, but didn't really have a plot. Then there are the stories that in the short number of pages told a story I enjoyed. But both sides of the coin will come with an anthology this size.

    This was a fun witty dark fantasy horror read. If you like a little yucky with your humor you might enjoy this book. But don't look for deep story lines here. There are a few story lines that seem like short stories but mostly not.

    The stories I enjoyed the most are: Dark Carbuncle, Death and Taxes, Dog Tired (of the Drama!), The Halloween War, Oh, the Ho-Ho Horror, Her Lucky Day, Barewolf, American Banchee, The Ghoul Next Door, Daycare of the Damned, The Close Shave, Lucifer's Daughter.

    Darkly humorous collection

    Another great anthology, this time from the Horror Writers Association. The theme for this anthology is dark humor, which is one of my favorites! Dark humor can make even a horrifying subject enjoyable, and some of these stories are so dark that they border on twisted!

    Don't think there's a weak story in this collection, but some of them just aren't my taste. I can still appreciate them though, so think this is a great collection! My favorites are Dark Carbuncle by Kevin J Anderson and Janis Ian (a rock & roll singer's worst nightmare); Tails by John R Little (I always wanted a tail!); and A Wing and a Prayer by Sharyn McCrumb (college dean appoints an unusual dept chairman). And we get a great story featuring Hope and Karl from the wonderful Kelley Armstrong! While Clay and Elena are my favorites, Hope and Karl are pretty good too.

    So if you want a taste of some darkly humorous tales, then I can highly recommend this collection! There's a little bit of everything in this anthology, so you're sure to find something you like!

    Good collection with only a few off notes

    The first Blood Lite was truly excellent, and the majority of the stories here are great; however, there are a few somewhat odd -- well, let's face it, bizarre -- selections that don't seem to belong with the others. Nevertheless, definitely recommended.
