I was a little creeped out by Harris's dedication, "For all those readers who want every last sip of Sookie." I wonder if she really thinks of her fans as vampires? Let me be clear that I like Sookie, but I'm not a fanatic about it. What I am a fanatic about is reading. I like to be thorough, so when I learned of this collection of short stories that complements or fills in the Sookie Stackhouse series, I requested it from the library right away.
It contains five stories, each published elsewhere first, but one of them, Dracula Night, was revised from its original appearance in Many Bloody Returns. It's a nice, light read that does exactly what it's supposed to do, give the reader a little more insight and background about its heroine. The last story, Gift Wrap didn't really ring true for me, but maybe I'm just being a prude.
