Includes a never-before-published Sookie Stackhouse story!
What could be scarier than the first day of school? How about a crash course in the paranormal from Charlaine Harris and Toni L. P. Kelner, editors of Home Improvement: Undead Edition? Your worst school nightmares - taking that math test you never studied for, finding yourself naked in school assembly, not knowing which door to enter - will pale in comparison to these 13 original stories that take academic anxiety to whole new realms.
In number-one New York Times best-selling author Charlaine Harris’s story "Playing Possum", Sookie Stackhouse brings enough birthday cupcakes for her nephew's entire class but finds she's one short when the angry ex-boyfriend of the school secretary shows up.
When her guardian, Kate Daniels, sends her undercover to a school for exceptional children, teenaged Julie learns an all-new definition of "exceptional", in New York Times best-selling author Ilona Andrews' "Magic Tests".
For those who like fangs with their forensics, New York Times best-selling author Nancy Holder offers "VSI", in which FBI agent Claire is tested as never before in a school for Vampire Scene Investigation. And in New York Times best-selling author Thomas Sniegoski's "The Bad Hour", Remy Chandler and his dog Marlowe find evil unleashed in an obedience school.
You'll need more than an apple to stave off the creatures in these and nine other stories. Remember your first lesson: Resistance is fruitless!

Middle of the pack. Good read (listen) from some very good authors.
I like these collection of stories to introduce myself to other authors. I found Ilona Andrews Kim Harrison and many others from these shirt story collections. A great way to sample various authors in one setting.
Performance if readers very good
These were shirt stories. Some action, some humor, some paranormal creatures.
I have quite a few of these collections from Harris, butcher and others. I think they are great for author introductions to the listeners.
Mystery & Suspense
There are several good short stories but I was expecting more by Charlaine Harris but it was just one short story.There were a few other good authors but there were several I needed to skip.
The first story with Sookie but that was very good at best.
The narrators were good, not great but not bad.
This is a mixture of short stories by several authors so i don't think that really applicable.
I gave this four generous stars. It's okay at best.
I surprised myself when I absolutely loved every single story in this collection! Usually there are at least one or two that can be left alone.
Not here; i love them all! great narrators also! Highly recommend to all!
