  • If you like your horror tales sprinkled with a dash of funny, you'll probably enjoy this collection of short stories. Some familiar names - Joe R. Lansdale, Charlaine Harris, Sharyn McCrumb, Jim Butcher, and plenty of unfamiliar ones (to me, anyway), manage to serve up the chills in a humorous VEIN to tickle your funny BONE. (GROAN! I know, sorry!)In addition to the usual suspects of the genre - vampires a-plenty, necromancers and ghouls, you'll also meet failed horror writers, undead celebritie [...]


  • I had been quite prepared to give this book two stars until Jim Butcher provided a better than average entry to conclude Blood Lite. Still, having read five anthologies in quick succession, I'm not sure I'm any better off than I was before.The book is largely hit or miss, with a couple of notable exceptions to either extreme. If I don't comment on a story, you can conclude that it didn't make much of an impression.Mr. Bear, by Joe R. Lansdale, is like reading Chuck Palanhiuk. You are thrown off [...]


  • In this review I’ve only listed the stories that are either a “don’t miss” or a “skip it entirely.” All others in the anthology are okay, but not noteworthy on either end of the spectrum. Total of 21 stories in book.The Ungrateful Dead – Kelly Armstrong – Zombie/Ghost story… fun… 3 starsMr. Bear – Joe R. Lansdale – non-horror, un-humorous story… so bad I didn’t even finish it… why in hell did they put this story in here if it didn’t fit the anthology at all? oooh, [...]


  • Ok, so the discription of the book says this is a collection of horror stories with a humorous bite. Well if you are expecting humor, look elsewhere. After the first seven stories I couldn't stomach reading any more of this collection.The worst of the standouts includes Mr. Bear: A horrible not-so-short story about a bear who I'm assuming is supposed to be Smokey The Bear. There is no humor whatsoever in this story. Mr. Bear kidnaps a human male to become his buddy which is to involve rape in th [...]


  • Pretty awesome! I generally don't read horror, but there was a Dresden story in this anthology, so I bought it, and figured since it was October, might as well read the rest of them in keeping with the season. There were a lot of good stories in this one! Some were just gruesome, some were verging on shocking, and some were just plain silly, but they were all pretty funny, and the Dresden story is great. All but the Dresden story really do belong in the horror section, though, so be warned.


  • There are 21 short stories in this anthology and almost every single one was so beyond fantastic that I can't even begin to describe them! I was laughing out loud with a great number of these dark comedies. I like the twisted take of most of these stories!


  • December was a pretty good month for me, book wise. It seemed like everything I picked up was enjoyable on one level or another. Then I decided I wanted to dive into some short fiction, and picked up Blood Lite, a horror comedy anthology, from my local book store. I was drawn to this particular book due to the fact that it had short fiction by some of my favorite paranormal writers: Charlaine Harris, Kelley Armstrong, and Jim Butcher. A first I found myself very happy with the content inside, bu [...]


  • According to the title of the book and the plot description on the back, Blood Lite is supposed to be a "humorous" book, the stories are supposed to be funny and scary at once but well, they aren't. I was very disappointed by the number of awful stories in this collection. Many of them fell flat, it was clear that the authors were trying be silly and amusing, but instead they came off as desperate and bleh. In the beginning I forced myself through these stories, but after a while I just straight [...]


  • I think the authors here were told to shoot for tones like "quirky" and "funny" when writing about urban supernatural and horror, and most of them overshot directly into "twisted in a disturbing and not funny or thoughtful way." More like "a bad Twilight Zone" vibe. However, at least all the stories were readable, unlike some of the messes of short stories I have seen in some similar compilations. I picked this up because two of my favorite authors had stories in it - as for those - Charlene Har [...]


  • I have been in love with this series so much I have gotten several more books in the same genre of short horror stories. This series especially has been infused with witty wonderful dark humor as well, addictive little vice I have discovered; I need more! These short stories have been such little nummers!!! Like little cupcakes! Mmmm! Read your face off!!




  • Reviewed for THC ReviewsWhen reading anthologies, I usually pick up one novella here and there to fill in gaps between longer books and rarely read them straight through. With that being the case, I've decided to post reviews of each story as I finish it. Reviews on the remaining novellas and the overall book rating will be forthcoming.:-)The Ungrateful Dead by Kelly Armstrong -Mr. Bear by Joe R. Lansdale - Hell In a Handbasket by Lucien Soulban - The Eldritch Pastiche from Beyond the Shadow of [...]


  • This is one of those books that I keep on my shelf because I'm a horrible packrat, and every now and then I take it down to re-read, despite vague warnings bells inside my head. Unfortunately, this collection is not very good. Most of the stories are unsatisfying at best and downright horrible at worst. There are a few good ones but the majority of them just left me scratching my head or rolling my eyes. I think the worst offender is 'Where Angels Fear to Tread' by Sherrilyn Kenyon. Perhaps it w [...]


  • Most of the stories in this collections are mediocre and/or forgettable and a few are kinda awful. However, this collection has a handful of gems, so I will focus on that. The gems are earlier rather than later in this collection"The Ungrateful Dead" by Kelley Armstrong was definitely amusing and an excellent start."Mr. Bear" by Joe Lansdale was beautiful and ridiculous as seems to be his natural style. Also, I'm saving the line "panties large enough to be used as a sling for the wounded leg of [...]


  • UGH! The only stories that were truely awesome in this book, in my opinion of course, are as follows: The Ungrateful Dead by Kelly Armstrong An Evening with Al Gore by Charlaine HarrisDay Off by Jim ButcherPlease note: I am by no means a Charlaine Harris or Kelly Armstrong fan. As a matter of fact the only way I seem to like Kelly is when she writes short stories, and to be honest this was the first piece of work I have ever ready by Charlaine Harris.On the other hand, I LOVE Jim Butcher.In the [...]


  • Not as humorous as I'd hoped. Some stories I skipped after the first page or two. My favorites were:The Ungrateful Dead by Kelley Armstrong medium, ghosts, good endingPR Problems by Eric James Stone ghoulsHigh Kicks and Misdemeanors by Janet Berliner killer ostriches?The Bell FROM HELL by Jeff Strand surprise endingDay Off by Jim Butcher a Dresden short of usual quality


  • As a whole, this book just didn't live up to its promise. Very few of the stories were funny. There were four that I really enjoyed and found amusing, seven stories that were ok-I could have taken or left them. Then there were the rest, ten stories that I felt were absolutely dreadful, so bad that I'd like my time back. The good stories were really very good, and the bad were very bad. It really made me wonder if the editor read them at all. They didn't belong in the same book, much less one tha [...]


  • I forgot until I read this book how short a short story actually is. I am so used to reading these books that have three authors and three stories (each story being in the 100 page range) that I forgot how FUN three page to 20 page stories can be. It's also a great way to wet your palet on an author you were not real sure about. This collection was quite fun and hardly any clunkers in the bunch. Perfect book for a short attention span or when you only have a little time here and there to read.


  • There are many amusing stories in "Blood Lite" an anthology with 21 stories from some of the biggest names in the current horror/paranormal genres. Includes stories by Jim Butcher, Charlaine Harris, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Mike Resnick, Sharyn McCrumb, and Kelley Armstrong. From witches to wizards, ghouls to ghosts, and weres to vampires, these stories vary wildly depending on the author's genre, but all have a wacky, humorous zing to them. A pleasant afternoon's reading and sure to hit your funny 'bo [...]


  • I came for Sherrilyn Kenyon, so I only read her short story. I did not expect it to be Zeke considering it's listed as Hellchaser's 0.5 and I was like, yeah we get to know who Thorn is and bam.we get whisked into Heaven into a different court and learn about Zeke. Huh, not bad.


  • This was a pretty entertaining collection of short storiesloved the Jim Butcher one and the Elvis one was quite good as well. Definitely worth a read.



  • Otherworld Stories 8.2: The Ungrateful Dead by Kelley ArmstrongIt would be nice to see this zombie tale play out to the end, likely after Jeremy has joined the party, but it doesn't. What you do get I'd a lot of ghost heckling, Jaime attempting to be patient and reasonable, with a healthy dose of Savannah's snark and humor added to the mix. Entertaining, but still lacking on a whole.Mr. Bear by Joe R. LansdaleWhat on earth did I just read? This is by far one of the most disjointed and generally [...]


  • Tedious The writing mechanics of this anthology are good, easily five stars. However, the content is tedious beyond words, and it was difficult to plod through this book. As well, I couldn’t connect with any of the characters and I disliked many of them. It was disappointing because I have books by some of these authors and normally love their work. Maybe the stories contained in this book would appeal to some readers, but I’m sorry that I wasted my money on it. I don’t recommend this book [...]



  • Horror QuickieThere were a few really great short stories in this anthology and a few that were good but not great. Overall I enjoyed the book but it won't be on my reread list




  • The Ungrateful Dead(5 out of 5): Jerks always get what they deserve.Mr. Bear (0 out of 5): When I read this story the first time it seemed so fucked up and completely ridiculous I didn't bother to read it again. It seemed like an "interesting" idea if you could call it that but totally lost in the translation. Heavy horror extremely like on the fun to read part. Hell in a Hand Basket (5 out of 5): I couldn't help but laugh my ass off priceless even if it was a little gross.The Eldritch Pastiche [...]
