If you have HBO at home you have probably seen the promotionals for their newest series, True Blood. Created by Alan Ball, the show is based on the wonderful Charlaine Harris‘ Southern Vampire Series. It is a whole different take on the fantasy genre, mixing Harris’ love of murder-mysteries with a touch of romance. Sookie Stackhouse is the much-loved heroine of her seven book series, who is a waitress living in Louisiana. The next Sookie Stackhouse book is due out sometime in May ’09. That leaves plenty of time to get caught up and read some appropriate Halloween literature. You can purchase all her books through Barnes and Noble. Dead until Dark is the first in the series and you can buy here for $7.99.
