This is a much thicker anthology than the previous one. Lots of great stories in there.

An anthology of humorous horror stories. I thought the first collection (titled, unsurprisingly, Blood Lite) was kind of a mixed bag. This one is, too, although overall perhaps a slightly less interesting one. There are a few delightful stories -- Lucien Soulban's "Good Breeding," about Lovecraftian horrors trying to figure out what to do with themselves after bringing about the apocalypse, is a hilariously entertaining standout -- but far too many are more gimmick than story, or are playing with tired Halloweeny tropes in not terribly interesting ways.

Enjoyable, light collection. Mostly stand-alones. ( )

I only read the Kelley Armstrong story. I love Hope and Karl is okay too. It is a short story, only 30 something pages. Very cute story. I really enjoyed this story. ( )

So I finally made my way through this one. As mentioned before, the people-eating got really tiresome. Let's see..the stories I enjoyed:

Death and Taxes (Heather Graham) was fun. You really can't escape taxes, no matter your state of death.

The Day the Devil... (Scott Nicholson) was just great. The end was a little anticlimactic, but the devil was nicely imagined.

The Halloween War (Brian Hatcher) had promise. The ideals of imaginary monsters vs. the reality-based monsters negotiating for control of Halloween? It could have been great, and it started out well, but partway through it fizzled.

Day Care of the Damned (Nina Kiriki Homman) was entertaining. I'd love to get some more short stories set in this world. Poor girl; or poor kids? Hard to decide!

The Close Shave (Resnick/Robyn) is a tight story with some good elements.

Lucifer's Daughter (Kelly Armstrong) read like an installment in a longer on-going series. It was intriguing, but felt unfinished.

I'm about halfway through and I'm a bit disappointed on the reliance on cannibalism as a story basis/twist. Hoping the rest are more creative and less gross. ( )
