For a book with 30 tales, then I suppose it's a case of 'you get what you pay for'. All were OK enough, but other than the Jim Butcher Harry Dresden tale, none was really 'stand out'.

As usual, JB never disappoints, and this tale fits in nicely with the sequel that appears in Hex.

I primarily got this for the Sherrilyn Kenyon tale, but I wish I hadn't bothered. It was too wishy-washy to be a true horror tale, and at 8 pages long, it was possibly the shortest of the lot.

Still, for a freebie read via my local library, it was a OK read - but not if I'd have paid for it.

I only got this for the Jim Butcher story which I thoroughly enjoyed but some of the other stories were just plain dull.. It made it really difficult to make my way through or pick up at the end of a day.

HASH(0x8fd3e42c) out of 5 stars Enjoyed it a lot 4 Sept. 2012
By GS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
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.

HASH(0x8fd3e480) out of 5 stars Short on humor. 5 Nov. 2014
By Anthony B - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
There were quite a few interesting ideas in this anthology, but the majority weren't ones I would say belonged in "an anthology of humorous horror stories"; a hard blend to accomplish. I only found about a half dozen of the stories to be actually funny.

HASH(0x9114b958) out of 5 stars An OK collection - something to borrow from the library or to pass on to someone when finished - not a keeper 4 Sept. 2015
By Michelle M - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This collection had some strong stories and some really bad ones but in this case the good outnumbered the bad. It is a decent way to pass the time and I would reccommend it for something to read just before going to sleep or while waiting in line at the bank.

HASH(0x8fd3e708) out of 5 stars Popcorn for the mind 27 Dec. 2012
By Badger Lady - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
If you are looking for a diverting two hour read, and like the absurd, this is your book. Like most anthologies, the stories are of uneven quality. Buy it for the stories of your favorite author and a chance to sample the works of the others.

HASH(0x8fd3e6a8) out of 5 stars Solid Collection Worth the Money 2 Jun. 2012
By CandleLight - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Good, but overall the reason I bought this was for Jim Butcher's short story. It was much shorter than is normal for his stories, so I confess I'm a little disappointed. But ultimately this is a solid collection and worth the money.
