Dead Un­til Dark Char­laine Harris, 2001

SFX - - 20 Greatest Books -

When Char­laine Harris took the first of her Sookie Stack­house nov­els to pub­lish­ers, they weren’t sure what to make of it. Here was a mix of hor­ror, ro­mance and mys­tery that de­fied cat­e­gori­sa­tion. ( Even now, the term ur­ban fan­tasy seems oddly in­ap­pro­pri­ate for nov­els so steeped in the south­ern US ru­ral ex­pe­ri­ence.) No mat­ter, read­ers im­me­di­ately con­nected with the tele­pathic wait­ress and Harris’s for­tune was made.
