Short and Sweet: Death's Excellent Vacation

Charlaine Harris and and Toni Kelner enjoy picking out the stories for their paranormal/mystery holiday anthologies, with Harris writing a new story to kick them off.  The latest, Death's Excellent Vacation, has a fun story with Sookie and Pam on a gambling vacation, with silly plot stuff to give them an excuse to get blonde and (almost) naked.  The other stories are also on the fluffy side, although not all have happy endings.Death's Excellent Vacation

It's a fun book for traveling, since the stories are short enough to read while waiting, which is an integral part of any journey.  I enjoyed the Sookie story and A. Lee Martinez's "The Innsmouth Nook" especially.  I think I'll go look for more of Martinez's stuff.  B
