Blood Lite is an anthology of light horror stories. Many of the stories use humor to temper the horror aspects of the story. The collection includes some stories that take place in popular series, such as The Dresden Files and The Women of the Underworld, as well as stories by lesser known authors. Although I am a fan of short story anthologies, there were only one or two in this anthology that I really liked. My favorite story was "Hell in a Handbasket" by Lucien Soulban where the Angel, Haniel, plays a practical joke on the demons in Hell. For most of the book, though, I found myself wondering when the story was going to be over, which isn't a good sign when they are so short to begin with.

It's funny (no pun intended) how if you liked a book the first time you read it, that you might not like it the second time you read it.....
I wasn't really as amused or enchanted as I was the first time around. In fact I thought the stories pretty lame and lacking. I did like "The Ungrateful Dead", which had a mildly amusing ending and "An Evening With Al Gore", but it wasn't "funny".
The one about Elvis being a vampire (which was not written by Charlaine Harris) was dumb as was the one about Mr. Franken & his reanimation projects.”
