Blood Lite is a collection of humorous horror stories, which more often than not means poking fun at horror tropes. If you're a fan of Jeff Strand-style stories you're in luck, because not only is he in here, so are 20 other tales of tongue-in-cheek terror.
Stand outs include Kelley Armstrong's "The Ungrateful Dead" about a woman who can see the dead and finds them to be as annoying and pushy as the living, "A Good Psycho is Hard to Find" by Will Ludwigsen which points out some of the more realistic side effects of surviving a teen psycho murderer and Jim Butcher's "Day Off". Altogether it's a very fun and dark collection that's sure to do well by horror (or dark fantasy or suspense, or whatever we're calling horror these days) fans. Definitely recommended.
Contains: Sex, language, gore, violence, bad puns
