Read from the Book

INTRODUCTION The first time I was asked to write a short story about my heroine, Sookie Stackhouse, I wasn''t sure I could do it. Sookie''s life and history are so complex that I didn''t know if I could create a coherent piece of short fiction that would do her justice. I''m still not sure, but I''ve enjoyed trying. Some efforts have been more successful than others. It''s been hard to fit the stories into Sookie''s larger history without leaving seams. Sometimes I succeeded, sometimes not. In this edition, I''ve tried to smooth out the edges of the story that was the most fun to write, but wouldn''t fit in its chronological hole no matter how I pounded ("Dracula Night"). In the order in which they occur in Sookie''s life, the stories are: "Fairy Dust" originally appeared in Powers of Detection . "Fairy Dust" is about the fairy triplets Claude, Claudine, and Claudette. Following the murder of Claudette, the Claude and Claudine seek Sookie''s help in determining the guilty party. Claude acquires a valuable asset in this story. The action in "Fairy Dust" takes place after the events in Dead to the World . In "Dracula Night," Eric invites Sookie to Fangtasia for the celebration of Dracula''s birthday, an annual event that makes Eric almost over the top with anticipation, since Dracula is his hero. Unfortunately, the "Dracula" who unveils himself may or may not be the real thing. Eric celebrates "Dracula Night" before the action of Dead as a Doornail . After Dead as a Doornail ,
