Read from the Book

IntroductionGames. They bring out the best in us, the worst in us, the thing-we-never-expected in us. From couch potato games on Wii to computer games like World of Warcraft, from church leagues to the major leagues in baseball, from professional bowling to amateur wrestling, from the pankration event at the ancient Olympics to doing a 360 in a skateboard park, human beings just naturally like to test their limits, both mental and physical.It's not much of a stretch to imagine that supernaturals like to do the same . . . or that otherworldly elements can enter the field of play.In our latest anthology, you'll find stories that feature ghostly players, bloodthirsty interruptions, and competitions with deadly outcomes. We warn you: this may put you off gaming for a while.But we don't think that will last long.Charlaine HarrisToni L. P. Keln
