Cover Art - "A Touch of Dead" by Charlaine Harris

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!

  1. Hi Doug!

    I can hardly wait for the new Sookie Stackhouse book, Dead and Gone, I didn't know about A Touch of Dead, so I have another one to forward too.

    Thanks for sharing the info.

  2. You got my heart pumping! Harris can do no wrong in my eyes. Te-he! Yeah, I heard the books that have the original short stories in them go for like forty or more dollars on ebay. Out of print and all that. If you have them...better sell them now.

  4. Hi Dottie, I am hoping Charlaine adds a couple of new previously unreleased stories to the collection :)

    Princess Allie yeah a collection towards the end of the year should tide us over until next years new Sookie book. As for her collectibles, I think I have all of her other appearances except for the 2004 out-of-print Harlequin which is being reprinted this fall anyway.

  12. Hi Doug..

    I have read all 9 of the books and I loved them!! Im so disapointed at how its ended because I am left guessing, and it is just driving me crazy! Do you know whether 'A touch of dead' is going to make a difference to that or whether it is just going to rehash all that has happened over the 9 previous books?.....

    Also do you know whether the oher books - that go in between the books throughout the series - are adding to the story or just elaborating on what has already happened..
    It is so hard to find any information on this.. I am going crazy with questions that I can't fnd any answers to... Arrhh

    If anyone can help me answer my questions.. Or is feeling the same.. Lets discuss.. Maybe that will help if we come up with something together... Email: the_princess_jazzy@hotmail.com

    Thanks :D

    Jazzy!

  13. Hi Jazzy. Some good questions. A Touch of Dead is actually a collection of Sookie short stories. They fill in a little bit of back story but none are really essential to the continuity of the series.
