    I'm not a big fan of anthologies -- too often, I find one or two

    I'm not a big fan of anthologies -- too often, I find one or two outstanding stories, and the rest seem like filler. That isn't true of "Hex Appeal". It's the perfect summertime collection for any fan of the supernatural, with just the right mix of stories by some of the best writers in the business.

    I was gifted with the book as a birthday present, and fully intended to put it aside to read on a plane later this month -- but I made the mistake of leafing through it, and it didn't take long for me to get hooked. P.N. Elrod's tale of a shadowy "government" agency that helps keep the supernatural hidden from us mortals -- with offices down the road from my home in Dallas -- was the first one to capture my attention, followed by Jim Butcher's new Harry Dresden tale. (That one had me laughing out loud at the image of Chicago's only practicing wizard explaining the supernatural to an Oklahoma cop.)

    Before I knew it, I'd devoured the whole book...and had a list of several authors who are new to me who are on my "must read" list now. I can't recommend this book enough -- if you like vampires and other supernatural tales, buy it now. You'll be glad you did!

     I usually only read short story collections if they contain a story from a an author I already like. This one happened to contain several of my favorites.
         Since all collections have an underlining theme, this one has stories that include lovely and sometimes, dangerous women in them. Stories are all fantasy themed and include vampires, big foot, a sex droid from the future, magicians who wield real magic, witches, and even men who are brought back from the dead, and  even a trip to Hell. These tales do contain a bit of romance at times, but are much more.
         Contains authors such as Jim Butcher, Carrie Vaughn, Simon R. Green, and many others.
         I enjoyed most of these stories, two really weren't my favorite, Cherry Kisses and I think it was titled There will be Demons, were not really my cup of tea, but the rest of the tales were interesting and a good read. This is one of the better collections I have read. If your looking for a break from full novels, this wouldn't be a bad choice.
