An anthology is one book with several short stories in it (mostly by different authors). You get several short "books" in one single book. Great if you don't have too much time to read (i.e. when traveling, before going to bed, etc.) or if you want to discover new authors. This week on YA Vampire Books, I will future several anthologies with a supernatural theme. .
Titel: Holidays Are Hell
Authors: Kim Harrison, Lynsay Sands, Vicki Pettersson & Marjorie M. Liu
Publisher: Harper (Oct. 2007)
This holiday, spend quality time with family and loved ones—living and dead... There's no place like home for the horrordays—unless you'd prefer a romantic midnight walk through a ghost-infested graveyard... or a haunted house candlelight dinner with the sexy vampire of your dreams. The (black) magical season is here—and whether it's a solstice séance gone demonically wrong with the incomparable Kim Harrison, a grossly misshapen Christmas with the remarkable Lynsay Sands, a blood-chilling-and-spilling New Year's with the wonderful Marjorie M. Liu, or a super-powered Thanksgiving with the phenomenal Vicki Pettersson, one thing is for certain: in the able hands of these exceptional dark side explorers, the holidays are going to be deliciously hellish!
- Perfect book for the upcoming holidays; Thanksgiving, Christmas and new Year's! -
