Publisher's Summary

You’re invited to a celebration of vampires by a baker’s dozen of favorite authors. Sink your teeth into 13 stories, each one a fresh and unique take on the concept of what birthdays mean to the undead.

In New York Times best-selling author Charlaine Harris’s “Dracula Night”, Sookie Stackhouse is the only human at the annual commemoration of Dracula’s birth. But this year, the Prince of Darkness actually shows up – and finds Sookie a tasty-looking present.

New York Times best-selling author Jim Butcher’s crime-solving wizard Harry Dresden, of the Dresden Files novels, heads to a role-playing party to give his vampire brother a birthday present in “It’s My Birthday, Too”, only to discover there are some bloodthirsty party crashers who don’t share their brotherly love.

In “Twilight”, Cassandra DuCharme, from New York Times best-selling author Kelley Armstrong’s Dime Store Magic, knows she has to kill to live as a vampire another year – but finds herself disturbingly disinterested in the hunt.

National best-selling author P. N. Elrod’s hardboiled vampire PI Jack Fleming, from The Vampire Files, infiltrates a suspicious séance on the eve of the dearly departed’s birthday in “Grave-Robbed”.

And in award-winning author Toni L. P. Kelner’s “How Stella Got Her Grave Back”, vampires become amateur sleuths (with breaks for feeding) to solve the murder of a Jane Doe.

Suspenseful, surprising, sometimes dark, sometimes humorous – these and eight more frighteningly original stories will ensure you’ll never think of vampires or birthdays quite the same again.

The list of authors also includes Jeanne C. Stein, Rachel Caine, Tanya Huff, Carolyn Haines, Christopher Golden, Bill Crider, Tate Hallaway, and Elaine Viets. This anthology was edited by Charlaine Harris and Toni L. P. Kelner.

    "A Fun Collection!"

    Overall a good collection of stories by different authors. Jim Butcher's story was the best, great description and storyline, very original (great for Harry Dresden fans). Charliaine Harris's story was a repeat from her Sookie books but still entertaining. Some stories were fun start to finish but some did feel incomplete or rushed. If you want an introduction to several authors in this paranormal fantasy genre, this is a good collection to review.

    "Lots of good stories by good autors"

    I like anthologies, gives me a chance to hear new authors, and narrators. Also most of the time the stories are not to long, so if your taking short trips, or just doing some yard work, bases are covered. I found myself enjoying 90% of this and to me that made it worth the buy. Kelley Armstrong, Jim Butcher, Rachel Cain, P N Elrod, Charlaine Harris...........and a few other good surprises.

    "Not as good as I hoped"

    Ok I just wasn't a fan of this anthrolgy. I normally really like Luke Daniels narration but not this time. Everything about this just felt flat to me. There was nothing that kept me interested in this. Like the Dresden story I have heard that story once before and really enjoyed it read by another narrator.

    I just had a hard time liking this one as I said the flat tones just never drew me in to any of the stories, maybe the written version would have been better.
