One for the Money - Jeaniene Frost As you might guess from the title, this anthology is very, very light vacation reading for fans of the supernatural. Bring it when you're planning on sitting on the beach with a short attention span.
As it lets you know, right smack on the cover, there's a Sookie Stackhouse story for the True Blood fans. Of the others, I thought that Daniel Stashower's "Meanwhile, Far Across the Caspian Sea..." and A. Lee Martinez' "The Innsmouth Nook" were the real standouts. Both are humorous writing - which I often find falls flat. But these are really funny - the first is set in a publishing house, and as you might guess from the title, the second sends up Lovecraft.
Nothing else in the book really impressed me enough to make me want to go find more work by the authors.
