Sookie Stackhouse Companion
August 29, 2011 - Amy Phelps
Can't get enough Sookie Stackhouse? Wish you could eavesdrop on vampire Bill and Eric's conversations? Check out "The Sookie Stackhouse Companion" edited by #1 New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris about her series that inspired "True Blood."
The book includes a never-before-published novella, "Small-Town Wedding" in which Sookie acts as Sam's date to his brother's wedding (not Tommy from the TV series.) There's also a timeline and summary of the books in the series, including never heard conversation and emails between characters, a timeline for how the Sookie short stories fit in with the series and a compendium by Sookie of the types of creatures she's met. There's also a trivia fan quiz, a recipe section including Lafayatte's burger sauce, Merlotte's Chicken Strips, Sookie's Chicken Casserole and Stackhouse Smothered Pork Chops, and her Grandma's Blue-Ribbon Chocolate Cake, with many recipes submitted by Charlaine Harris herself.
There is also a Q&A section from "True Blood's" creator, Alan Ball and one from Charlaine Harris. The book wraps up with a guide to the novels, short stories and characters that appear in the books. For the Sookie Stackhouse series fan, this book is an absolute must. It delves deeper into the series and its always fun to get the author's point-of-view about the characters and world she has created. This book can tide fans over until the next book or next season of True Blood.
"The Sookie Stackhouse Companion" is published by Ace. It is $30 and 461 pages.
