Product description

First time in paperback! 14 TALES BY PATRICIA BRIGGS - VICTOR GISCHLER - HEATHER GRAHAM - JAMES GRADY - SIMON R. GREEN - CHARLAINE HARRIS - STACIA KANE - TONI L. P. KELNER - E E KNIGHT - ROCHELLE KRICH - MELISSA MARR - SEANAN MCGUIRE - SUZANNE MCLEOD - S J ROZAN "The editors of the "New York Times "bestselling "Death's Excellent Vacation "bring home a captivating collection--including a Sookie Stackhouse story. " There's nothing like home renovation for finding skeletons in the closet or otherwordly portals in the attic. Now, for any homeowner who's ever wondered, "What's that creaking sound?" or fans of "how to" television who'd like a little "un"reality mixed in with their reality shows, editors Charlaine Harris and Toni L. P. Kelner present the paranormal perils of Do-It-Yourself. Sookie Stackhouse resides in these pages, in "If I Had a Hammer," and "New York Times "bestselling authors Patricia Briggs, James Grady, Heather Graham, Melissa Marr, and nine other outstanding writers have constructed more frightening and funny fixer-upper tales to give a fresh take on why there really is "no place like home."..

Review quote

Praise for "Home Improvement: Undead Edition" "The authors do a fine job of exploring the danger of the DIY movement. The tone ranges from silly ("It's All in the Rendering") to classic horror ("The Mansion of Imperatives")...there is no lack of imagination in this collection...This is definitely one of the most fun books you will read this summer."--"San Francisco Book Review " "These are delightful, entertaining and chilling stories. Some of them you'll be carrying around in your head for days. Do yourself a favor and spend a rainy afternoon with this book."--"Fresh Fiction ""Fun, different and often surprising compilation of short stories...This collection is a treat; the stories are strong and most reward the reader with a pleasing plot twist. The paranormal element added to the mundane yet trying experience of home or business renovation was an inspired theme certain to strike a cord with anyone who has lived the experience. Just the thing to enjoy on a languid summer day with a tall glass of cold lemonade."--"Monsters and Critics "
