This book was a really quick read. I love me some short story collections from time to time because they make it easier to take a break after a story or two. I got "Blood Lite 3: Aftertaste" mainly because of Jim Butcher's short story "I Was A Teenage Bigfoot". I'm not familiar with any work by the other authors but I will look into some a bit more now.
What can I say? This book had everything: a sick Bigfoot in school; two old guys playing golf in the middle of a zombie apocalypse; zombie lawyers; a redneck taxidermist; a zombie, a skeleton, a werewolf and a vampire at a beauty salon where a new manicurist just got hired; the supernatural world uniting against alien invaders; a demon's first visit to our world; a documentary about the four horsemen going on tour; a steeple factory from hell...and so on. The ideas for most stories were pretty brilliant and original.
A few stories left me confused about what was going on: "Mint in Box", "Let that be a Lesson to you", "Dating after the apocalypse" and "Brians". I'm not saying they were bad, just that I didn't get it. Maybe it was the writing or maybe it was just me being dense (yeah I do have such days).
Some stories made me laugh: "Blood-Red Greens", "Nine Tenths of the Law", "Scrumptious Bone Bread" to name a few here.
One story creeped me out: "Put on a Happy Face" because it had clowns in it, and clowns creep me out. Not saying that's a bad thing.
"Still Life" was the shortest story and it took me a second to understand it. Yeah, dense, I know.
I can't decide which story was my favorite: "Making the Cut" or "The Last Demon". For both stories I loved the idea, the writing, the characters, simply everything.
All in all I would recommend this book to everyone who likes macabre humour. I definitely had fun reading it, and think it's an overall good anthology.
