A Touch of Dead from Charlaine Harris is due for release October 6, 2009. It is a collection of Sookie Stackhouse short stories although apparently it is not a complete compilation. The cover is by Lisa Desimini, designer of all of Harris' other covers. Dallas over at the Loving True Blood in Dallas blog has the most up to date information on the collection. The next full length Sookie book Dead and Gone is out on May 5, just a few weeks away. Can't wait!
