    One thought on “A Touch of Dead”

    1. Here's a fun joke you can play on someone! Loan them your copies of the Twilight books. Now, if you've chosen to play this joke on someone capable of experiencing love, wait for them to breathlessly return them to you. Then, when they ask you what other books you like, loan them the Sookie Stackhouse novels. Check in with them periodically. Smile and nod when they compare Bill to Edward. Bide your time. Wait until they've gotten through the first three books, and then ask them what they thought [...]

    2. Fairy Dust(view spoiler)[ I have no idea how Sookie worked out who killed Claudette.(hide spoiler)]DraculaReally quite odd. (view spoiler)[ not sure how Sookie got away with killing that vamp, no matter how annoying he was!(hide spoiler)]One Word AnswerShort story about Hadley's death, and I didn't like the one word answer when two questions were asked! Which question was she answering? LuckyOkay story, not sure why they thought themselves lucky though.Gift Wrap(view spoiler)[ not impressed. Wha [...]

    3. Bizarrely, this book of short stories made me think less of every character appearing in them.Fairy Dust: Not very illuminating. I guess Claudine was the only good one of those triplets. The mystery was pretty dim, including Sookie's eureka moment.Dracula Night: I did not need to see Eric starring in "The Great Pumpkin". On top of that, why on earth would Eric worship Vlad Tepes, who died in 1476? He's half Eric's age. And claiming Tepes created a Golden Age for vampires seems ridiculous. Bullsh [...]

    4. I felt cheated by this one. Somehow, these stories left me with the feeling that I just read a short advertisement for the Sookie Stackhouse series. I mean, Harris spends so much time explaining every single stinking detail of Sookie, her life, her friends in Bon Temps and the surrounding area, that very little story is left for the actual well, the actual story itself. And the stories don't really hold up well on their own. I mean, they fit nicely into the context of the larger series ~ if you [...]

    5. Rating: three and a half smiley stars of fiveThe Publisher Says: New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris has re-imagined the supernatural world with her “spunky” (Tampa Tribune) Southern Vampire novels starring telepathic waitress Sookie Stackhouse. Now, for the first time, here is every Sookie Stackhouse short story ever written— together in one volume.Stories include “Fairy Dust,” “One Word Answer,” “Dracula Night,” “Lucky,” and “Giftwrap.” My Review: How f [...]

    6. Yippee!!!!The library finally has 4 copies, at least, and I've dropped to #3 on the waiting list :):)Oh yeahoh yeahoh yeah!I've had the emailIt's sitting waiting for me.Just in time for the long weekend :) :)Oh dear. It's too quick to read! Read one before I went to sleep last night. Another one in the middle of the night when I was awake and bored. Arrrgggh.If I let myself pick it up again I'll be finished it today!Sigh. And so it was. Over quickly. Too quickly. and now there'll be this extende [...]

    7. Fairy Dust is a short story in the Sookie Stackhouse series by popular American author, Charlaine Harris. Claudine, the only fairy that Sookie has ever met, comes into the bar with a request for help. And while fairies are notoriously bad tippers, Sookie will get paid for using her telepathic powers, so she agrees. They go to Claude’s house (Claudine’s brother, identical, who knew?) where Sookie, in her unique way, questions three of Claude’s work colleagues at the exotic dance club, Hooli [...]

    8. I am not a particular fan of short stories, so read this just for the sake of completeness after finishing the Sookie novels. In the collection of five stories, I found "One Word Answer" the most interesting especially with the mention of Marie Laveau, an actual person in the history of New Orleans who also appears in Barbara Hambly's Benjamin January series. Featuring Amelia and a brief appearance by Bob, "Lucky" was an enjoyable and cute read.

    9. 3.5 stars. I thoroughly enjoyed this collection of short stories, so much so that I was about to give it 4 stars. I think my enjoyment has a lot to do with the fact that I didn't have to pay $23.95 to read it. As a free offering, it's a great entertainment.In no way is Charlaine Harris is a great short story writer or a writer period, and yet her books are like crack to me - can't get enough of them, even though I know they are not good in any literary sense. Yes, some of the stories suffer from [...]

    10. Another fun read. If you haven't read any Sookie Stackhouse before, this isn't a great introduction. Harris relies on the books for the world setting, but does fill in enough details to keep the chronology within the series correct. “Fairy Dust” is after the events in "Dead to the World" & is pretty good. It's a murder mystery with Claudine & Claude in it.“Dracula Night” happens before "Dead as a Doornail" & was probably my least favorite story of the bunch. It takes place mo [...]

    11. Wow. This book was lame. No new story, just five stories already published in other short story collections. Two-page illustrations in front of each story and really big font to make you feel like you actually read a book instead of a glorified Sookie Stackhouse brochure. I'd only read one of the stories before, unfortunately for me it was apparently the best of the bunch. "Gift Wrap" was plain awful. "Fairy Dust" is unimpressive (ooh, Sookie's so clever and uses her extreme cleverness to solve [...]

    12. I don't know how to rate these novels - my husband told me to start a 'guilty pleasures' book shelf and put them on there and rate them accordingly, but I'm not ready to start making separate shelves yet! They're totally trashy & when I read the first one I originally thought "this is so poorly written & trashy, who reads these?" Quickly I was sucked in and read every single last page of every single book in the series along with a short stories book. (I mean, it only take a brief evenin [...]

    13. A fun collection of short stories from the wonderful Sookie Stackhouse universe. Some of these stories should have been included as sections in the other books and expanded upon! Then there are a couple that are simply just fun shorts. “Fairy Dust” - Sookie helps Claudine and Claude figure out what happened to their sister Claudette. “One Word Answer” - Sookie finds out about Hadley! “Dracula Night” - Eric throws a huge Halloween Party at Fangtasia! “Lucky” - Amelia and Sookie in [...]

    14. A Touch of Dead is an omnibus of five short stories in the Sookie Stackhouse series by popular American author, Charlaine Harris.Fairy Dust: Claudine, the only fairy that Sookie has ever met, comes into the bar with a request for help.

    15. A Touch of Dead consists of 5 short stories that fall in various places in the Southern Vampire Series, featuring heroine Sookie Stackhouse. I absolutely love that Harris has collected up all of the Sookie short stories into one volume. Now I really wish all the other series that I read would do the same thing! The stories in A Touch of Dead fall in various places throughout the Sookie novels, and are thoughtfully put in chronological order in the collection. Some give us a little more back-stor [...]

    16. This was a lovely little addition to my Sookie Stackhouse collection. Although I had read most of the books before reading these short stories and could see where they would fit on the timeline you really don't need to read them in order. The only disappointing thing - I finished them way to quickly. There are a total of five stories which are all very good:Fairy DustThis is a miniature mystery as Sookie is asked by her fairy godmother to investigate the death of her sister. Along the way we are [...]

    17. Terrible. Also, the final story features the most disturbing and generally wrong present ever given by a great-grandfather to his great-grand-daughter. Plus, in its entirety so dull that even people who actually think Harris can write will be bored.

    18. Fairy DustThis story is about Claude and Claudine. I never knew they were actually 2 of a set of triplets. That's one of the joys of short stories slipped between novels in a series. You get little glimpses and facts that just aren't neccesary to canon, but are sure fun to read. My favorite line in the story is at the end when Claudine says "Fair is only part of Fairy as letters of the alphabet." It sounds so menacing, and since I picture Claudine as Liv Tyler in my head, I can just see her sayi [...]

    19. Harris' Sookie Stackhouse series has really hit it big. Besides being a nice mix of the occult and humor, everyone is diving into the long-popular series since it has been converted into a television show on HBO. This volume collects a number of stories that have been written over the years and included in collections of vampire tales from popular writers in the genre.In "Fairy Dust," readers got their first chance to meet Claude AND Claudine, two twin fairies that eventually play a major role i [...]

    20. This book was passed to me by my older sister, who is not a reader. That I know of, she had read two books in her life, and then Sookie Stackhouse and the HBO TrueBlood series came along and for the first time in her life she was anxiously waiting for a book release and asking for books for Christmas. So when she finished this one she brought it to me because she wanted me to love it too. That's sweet.I hadn't read any of Harris' books but figured there must be some fantastic writing for her to [...]

    21. Fills in all the holes between books that really annoyed me. Also a minimum of descriptions of the freaking waitress uniform, which was nice!.

    22. This gorgeous and sleek book contains five short stories by Charlaine Harris that up until now were included in other anthologies. They're all about Sookie Stackhouse and take place between certain books in the series. I think the UK/Australian cover is absolutely gorgeous. This is the US cover, which is really cute too. And the inside is just as stunning. There's an introduction by Charlaine herself, and a two-page illustration at the beginning of every story. Now, here's a little about the sto [...]

    23. All of these stories were published in other anthologies, so it's possible they can be rereads; I know I'd encountered at least one before reading this volume.The story arcs and timelines of the full length Sookie novels are pretty tight; as a result, the stories aren't a part of the timeline, and with one exception, don't contain information that's pertinent to the rest of the books. Some of the stories I definitely liked more than others; hell, in the introduction, Charlaine Harris tells us th [...]

    24. While I have never ever seen a single episode of the famous HBO Series “True Blood” (I know, I know! But I was way-beyond the target demographic by the time the series came out, so perhaps you might be able to forgive me.), I have been reading the tales of Sookie Stackhouse for quite a while now. I remain one of the more ardent readers of supernatural/paranormal-themed anthologies, and Charlaine Harris’ stories are usually star attractions therein. However, before I even begin my ramblings [...]

    25. A Touch of Dead (Sookie Stackhouse #4.1, 4.3, 5.1, 7.1 & 8.1) is a collection of short stories from the Sookie Stackhouse series, and honestly I haven't read any of it. BUUUUUUUT this book had totally gotten me cause I'm into all the supernatural books. However,I didn't like it that much so I'm giving it 3 stars.*Fairy Dust* In this story Sookie is unraveling a mystery surrounded by the death of Claudette, the triplet of Claudine and Claude. Sookie as we all know has the ability to read mind [...]

    26. A collection of Sookie Stackhouse short stories.If you've ever picked up a Sookie Stackhouse book and wondered who were those characters, and where did they come from, and why don't I remember a single thing about them (see also: Have I lost my mind and bought in the wrong series?!), this is the book for you.Actually, these were helpful, and did explain a lot. It's not completely necessary to read them in chronological order, as they should appear between the books, but that might help too.I spe [...]

    27. 2nd re-reading this time by audiobook. I have the hardbook and the audiobook.My rating hasn't changed for this book. It's good but not as good as the other books in the series. I really disliked the story of her Fairy Grandfather setting up some stupid story about a hurt werewolf just so she'd have some lovin' that would make her feel better. She's usually not a one-night stand girl and the manipulation was just cringy. Otherwise, the stories are good.

    28. This wasn't a bad collection of novellas, but I'm glad they were only short. I can't say I had a favorite out of the collection, but I think my least favorite was "One word answer" I just couldn't get into that one. Overall, Okay novellas.
