Death's Excellent Vacaction by Charlaine Harris and Toni L.P. Kelner

 ***Includes a new Sookie story ( road trip with Pam called "Two Blondes")

Toni Kelner and I had a great chat about the exciting new anthology of (lucky!) thirteen deliciously dark tales, all by different authors. In Death's Excellent Vacation, editors Charlaine Harris and Toni L. P. Kelner bring together a stellar collection of tour guides who offer vacations that are frightening, funny, and touching for the fanged, the furry, the demonic, and the grotesque. Learn why it really can be an endless summer-for immortals.
So of course we want to know about the new book, Death's Excellent Vacation. What's it about and why do you love it?
Death's Excellent Vacation is our take on the beach book.  We asked our contributors to write about supernatural creatures on vacation--that was our whole pitch--and Charlaine and I were just amazed at how many different takes on that simple theme people came up with.  I love how each story is both wonderful and wildly different from the others.

I just read D.E.V. and love it because
Pam and Sookie are best friends and make
a great pair when it comes to helping each other out when taking care of problems that come up.Love the stripper
poll and little dance.
