It really can be an endless summer - if you’re immortal. Though a vampire would be ill-advised to take a cruise to Bermuda, the possibilities for getting away from it all - and maybe snacking on some unsuspecting tourist - are many. Sookie Stackhouse and her vampire friend Pam take a weekend getaway to Mississippi in author Charlaine Harris’s 'Two Blondes.' And when they end up in a shady gentleman’s club, to escape in one piece they need to do something that wasn’t on their itinerary - something involving a stage, a pole, and very little clothing. Author Katie MacAlister’s 'The Perils of Effrijim' follows a demon whose vacation in Paris is disrupted when he’s banished to another plane, thus kicking off a crazy dimension-hopping road trip across Europe. Protecting an heiress from supernatural hit men isn’t Cat and Bones’s idea of a relaxing vacation in author Jeaniene Frost’s 'One for the Money', but it could get worse. And it does - when Cat’s mother shows up. Editors Harris and Kelner bring together a collection of tour guides who offer vacations frightening, funny, and touching - for the fanged, the furry, the demonic, and the grotesque.
