This was a really fun collection. The thing I love most about art is that you can give two different people the same concept, and they will come back with drastically different results. This compilation of short stories is a great example of that. Besides, vampires and birthdays, what can be more fun than that?
I bought this book because I am a huge Charlaine Harris fan. I didn't really expect to be interested in the other authors here. Wow was I wrong. I really enjoyed every single story. Albeit, I probably wont get into every author in here, but my interest has been piqued for a few. (I never thought I'd be interested in Jim Butcher...ever!)
A lot of the stories are sad, but there is a good amount of humor mixed in. It's definitely worth a read!
