This fourteen urban fantasy anthology are tongue in cheek tales that humorously lampoons the sub-genre and self help guides.  All the entries are lighthearted fun as the readers leans the true meaning of bump in the night.  The editors book end the collection as Charlaine Harris opens with Sookie greeted by a newcomer when a wall comes down in “If I Had a Hammer”; while Toni L.P. Kelner finishes the book with “In Brightest Day” in which raising the dead Gorrfried proves difficult as he keeps getting dead.  Elyna “Gray ” (Patricia Brigg’s learns you can’t go home to renovate in Chicago.  Broahm calls “Wizard Home Security” (by Victor Gichler) when someone broke into his home.  In New Orleans, Defeo goes home to find pig’s “Blood on the Walls” of the family tombs by Heather Graham.  The European knows he needs to change his GPS now that he is in the American Midwest’s Switzerland Wisconsin learning first hand about “Woolsey’s Kitchen Nightmare” by E. E. Knight.   All the entries are enjoyable humorous Home Improvement tales that Tim Taylor would appreciate the paranormal power tools.
