Overview

Includes an original Sookie Stackhouse story

TALES OUT OF SCHOOL BY ILONA ANDREWS • AMBER BENSON • RHYS BOWEN • MIKE CAREY • CHARLAINE HARRIS • DONALD HARSTAD • STEVE HOCKENSMITH • NANCY HOLDER • FAITH HUNTER • TONI L. P. KELNER • MARJORIE M. LIU • JONATHAN MABERRY • THOMAS E. SNIEGOSKI

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 Games Creatures Play?

Your worst school nightmares—taking that math test you never studied for, finding yourself naked at a school assembly, not knowing which door to enter through—will pale in comparison to these thirteen stories that take academic anxiety to realms you never dared to imagine. You’ll need more than an apple to stave off these creatures. Remember your first lesson: Resistance is fruitless!
