The Horror Writers Association Presents:


The third hilarious horror collection in the national bestselling series from the Horror Writers Association!

Sink your teeth into a smorgasbord of macabre morsels laced with horrific humor in this all-new Blood Lite collection!

Whether you shriek with laughter or scream in fear . . . well, that’s simply a matter of taste. Jim Butcher’s wizardly PI Harry Dresden pranks some high-tech monster seekers — and rescues a friend’s son from a psychic battle in “I Was a Teenage Bigfoot” . . . The Author from Hell has dropped dead, but a stressed-out editor is still harassed by her emails from beyond the grave in Sherrilyn Kenyon’s “A Day in the Life” . . . The flesh is weak — and possibly even rotting — as a teenage virgin werewolf discovers on a visit to a brothel in Kelley Armstrong’s “V Plates” . . . Murder comes alive in “Mannequin” by Heather Graham, as two thrill-seeking couples “axe” for trouble at a B&B with a bloody history.

Plus, twenty-six other tales to tempt and terrorize you from L.A. Banks, Christopher Golden, Joel A. Sutherland, E.S. Magill, Eric James Stone, Jeff Strand, Mark Onspaugh, Mike Baron, J.G. Faherty, Stephen Dorato, Jeff Ryan, Mike Resnick and Lezli Robyn, Will Ludwigsen, Daniel Pyle, Nina Kiriki Hoffman, John Alfred Taylor, David Sakmyster, Norman Prentiss, Don d’Ammassa, Adrian Ludens, Chris Abbey, D.L. Snell, Ken Lillie-Paetz, Lisa Morton, Brad C. Hodson, and Lucien Soulban.

    Macabre laced with humor? Sounds fantastic. I’ve heard of most of these author’s but somehow missed this series of books. Thanks for the heads up.
