Bestselling author Charlaine Harris re-imagines the supernatural world with her Sookie Stackhouse novels—the inspiration for the hit HBO® series, True BloodSM. Now, for the first time, Harris gathers into one volume every short story she’s ever written about her telepathic waitress.
In “Fairy Dust,” fairy twins Claude and Claudine hire the feisty telepath to determine which one of three suspects killed their sister. It’s “Dracula Night”—the master vamp’s birthday—and Sookie is invited to the celebration…only the Dracula who shows up may not be the real thing. In “One Word Answer,” news of her cousin’s murder arrives with a lawyer who has an ulterior motive for his mission.
With a rabbit’s foot and well-cast spells, Sookie’s insurance agent keeps his clients “Lucky.” But his luck may run out unless Sookie and witch Amelia can catch whoever’s been prowling through his files. And in “Giftwrap,” it’s Christmas Eve; a lonely Sookie is feeling sorry for herself when a wounded werewolf gives her an unexpected present.
With notes on where they fall in the series’ timeline, these five tales shed light on little facets of Sookie’s life, making A Touch of Dead a welcome addition to the Stackhouse canon.

I loved the short stories about the Sookie Stackhouse novels. They were a joy to read.
Reviewer: Teresa K
I thoroughly enjoyed the book. I love Sookie. She is my favv0rite among Miss Harris' heroines. Unfortunately, they were short stories. Over much too soon.
I thought this book was written by a fifth grader. It was horrible! It's amazing how top rated television shows come from such books. Maybe I'll have my 2 year old twin niece and nephews try their hands at writing. Very disappointed with the style, the storylines, etc. Thank goodness they were short stories.
I love the whole Sookie series!
I thoroughly enjoyed each of these fun and great short stories. I am one of those readers who craves ?for every last sip? of Sookie, (as Charlaine Harris says), and this book did not disappoint. Now that Charlaine Harris has delivered a memorable and delicious amuse bouche, I?m eager for the main course, another volume of collected Sookie short stories. (?Tacky? from ?My Big Fat Supernatural Wedding?, ?Bacon? from ?Strange Brew?, ?An Evening With Al Gore? from ?Blood Lite?, and the new release ?Two Blondes? from ?Death?s Excellent Vacation?) As Charlaine Harris says in her introduction, ?some are light hearted and some are more serious?. Any fan of the vampire mystery book series or the HBO ?True Blood? series will love this book.
