In the wake of the Twilight series, Asi, my teen fantasy fiction supplier, handed me this book. Prom Nights from Hell is a collection of short stories from notable authors such as Meg Cabot, Lauren Myracle, Kim Harrison, Michele Jaffe and of course Stephenie Meyer. For quick reads while waiting in the car, while waiting for water to boil for pasta or while waiting to get a turn on the computer, these short stories are good enough to whet one’s appetite for the macabre.
I liked the variety of characters in the collection from the vampire slayer, the ‘dim’ reaper, the super hero to the demon. It is but a teaser though, it doesn’t have the satiated feel you get from reading a whole novel. But for a quickie, it is good enough. Now I want to find more novels from these authors.
If you’re into vampires and paranormal, I stumbled on this site, Vampire Wire, which focuses on just that.
