This book was a really quick read. I love me some short story collections from time to time because they make it easier to take a break after a story or two. I got "Blood Lite 3: Aftertaste" mainly because of Jim Butcher's short story "I Was A Teenage Bigfoot". I'm not familiar with any work by the other authors but I will look into some a bit more now.

What can I say? This book had everything: a sick Bigfoot in school; two old guys playing golf in the middle of a zombie apocalypse; zombie lawyers; a redneck taxidermist; a zombie, a skeleton, a werewolf and a vampire at a beauty salon where a new manicurist just got hired; the supernatural world uniting against alien invaders; a demon's first visit to our world; a documentary about the four horsemen going on tour; a steeple factory from hell...and so on. The ideas for most stories were pretty brilliant and original.

A few stories left me confused about what was going on: "Mint in Box", "Let that be a Lesson to you", "Dating after the apocalypse" and "Brians". I'm not saying they were bad, just that I didn't get it. Maybe it was the writing or maybe it was just me being dense (yeah I do have such days).

Some stories made me laugh: "Blood-Red Greens", "Nine Tenths of the Law", "Scrumptious Bone Bread" to name a few here.

One story creeped me out: "Put on a Happy Face" because it had clowns in it, and clowns creep me out. Not saying that's a bad thing.

"Still Life" was the shortest story and it took me a second to understand it. Yeah, dense, I know.

I can't decide which story was my favorite: "Making the Cut" or "The Last Demon". For both stories I loved the idea, the writing, the characters, simply everything.

All in all I would recommend this book to everyone who likes macabre humour. I definitely had fun reading it, and think it's an overall good anthology.

The stories by all the authors were very good .. very well developed. Although very much a Jim Butcher fan, the other authors made it a wonderful evening read.

This book is my favourite out of the trilogy collections of anthologies. The stories were all very clever, funny and kept me riveted. Well worth the price. I have happily discovered many new authors.

Good, but overall the reason I bought this was for Jim Butcher's short story. It was much shorter than is normal for his stories, so I confess I'm a little disappointed. But ultimately this is a solid collection and worth the money.

I bought this for the Jim Butcher Dresden story, and in the end I was disappointed because it was the only one that was any good in the whole collection.

If you are looking for a diverting two hour read, and like the absurd, this is your book. Like most anthologies, the stories are of uneven quality. Buy it for the stories of your favorite author and a chance to sample the works of the others.

There were quite a few interesting ideas in this anthology, but the majority weren't ones I would say belonged in "an anthology of humorous horror stories"; a hard blend to accomplish. I only found about a half dozen of the stories to be actually funny.

I'll be honest, I only bought this book to read the Dresden Files short story, but it turns out some of the others aren't bad.
