It really can be an endless summer - if you're immortal. Though a vampire would be ill-advised to take a cruise to Bermuda, the possibilities for getting away from it all - and maybe snacking on some unsuspecting tourist - are many....

Sookie Stackhouse and her vampire friend Pam take a weekend getaway to Mississippi in number-one New York Times best-selling author Charlaine Harris's Two Blondes. And when they end up in a shady gentleman's club, to escape in one piece they need to do something that wasn't on their itinerary - something involving a stage, a pole, and very little clothing.

New York Times best-selling author Katie MacAlister's The Perils of Effrijim follows a demon whose vacation in Paris is disrupted when he's banished to another plane, thus kicking off a crazy dimension-hopping road trip across Europe.

Protecting an heiress from supernatural hit men isn't Cat and Bones's idea of a relaxing vacation in New York Times best-selling author Jeaniene Frost's One for the Money, but it could get worse. And it does - when Cat's mother shows up.

Editors Harris and Kelner bring together a stellar collection of tour guides who offer vacations frightening, funny, and touching - for the fanged, the furry, the demonic, and the grotesque.

    " I only ready Jeaniene Frost's Cat & Bones story. As always, I love those two in any story, AND Justina's in it and I didn't want to kill her! :D This story takes place after Destined for an Early Grave (Book 4). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sonia Ashby | 2/11/2014

    " This is a collection of short stories by different authors. I really enjoyed "Two Blondes" by Charlaine Harris and "One for the Money" by Jeaniene Frost. This was a fun and quick way to be exposed to large number of new authors. The other short story I really enjoyed was "Pirate Dave's Haunted Amusement by Toni Kelner. I liked having a vampire end up with a werewolf. Everyone deserves to find love, but hey that is just the romantic in me talking. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Crystal | 2/7/2014

    " Cute Short story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lizzie | 1/18/2014

    " This rating is for the Sookie story only. I didn't bother listening to the rest of the stories when I heard a fobby accent being used by one of the narrators. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melanie Liechty | 1/9/2014

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aubrey Maples-saus | 12/13/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marcia | 12/9/2013

    " Listened to this one on CD liked the Sookie and Kat and Bones stories the others were a mixed bag, skipped over one or two of them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melody | 12/5/2013

    " Some great short stories. Some more eh... Worth the time though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susie | 12/3/2013

    " I was really disappointed because I thought is was filled with only Sookie stories and there was only one, but the one that was in there was awesome. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maggie Douglas | 11/24/2013

    " A bunch of short stories by different authors. Some better than others. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mikelyn | 6/26/2013

    " While I enjoyed the stories in this collection, the readers were a little distracting. It wasn't enough to ruin it, but it was enough that I would recommend reading the book instead if you have the time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lordaaron | 1/19/2013

    " A good compilation of short stories to give a taste of some different authors. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ray Charbonneau | 12/4/2012

    " Some good stuff. Hardly any soft-core vampire porn, for which I am grateful. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mrs.Mason | 8/27/2012

    " Some interesting stories - most of which seem minor continuations of larger series - in which case I'm intrigued in some cases and dubious in others. The Charlaine Harris story was actually fairly weak all things considered while some of the others were very good. "

    " Not my cup of tea, or just boring? I rarely fail to finish fiction, especially short story collections, and am a fan of C. Harris and L.A. Banks, but the half of the book I read was severely lacking. "

    " I was disappointed with this book. I think that some of the stories were VERY good, but there were definitely more bad then good. The good stories were amazing but the bad ones were just horribly cliche and had flat story lines as well as one dimensional characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly | 4/29/2011

    " A strong collectionof short stories. If I were able to rate some of these stories individually, they'd get five stars. "

    " This one starts out with a Sookie/Pam story...we shall see...sad to say I really lost interest after the Sookie story. I looked through all of them and none really held my interest. "
