For those who have been feeling the pain of the end of the Sookie Stackhouse mysteries this May, we’re getting a tiny bit more closure, possibly by Halloween! Charlaine Harris announced on her website this morning that there will be a short book that tells what happened to other characters in the Sookieverse after the end — whatever that end may be — of Dead Ever After, which will be released May 7.
Here’s Charlaine’s original post:
I hope a lot of you read this thread today, because I’ve chosen it to make a little announcement. I just saw the cover for “After Dead,” which is the coda to the Sookie books. My publisher decided to publish it before Christmas in a separate volume. It will be a slim book containing what happens AFTER “DEA” to many of the characters I’ve created over the years. And Lisa is drawing a Sookie alphabet for the book. There are several other features under consideration for this volume, which is intended as a stocking stuffer. I’ll post more when I know it.
And here is where you can order After Dead, which is already available for pre-order on Amazon, with a scheduled release date of October 29, 2013.
