Polly for Bitten by Books (http://bittenbybooks.com/?p=249)
"Assistant Directors had to be prepared to deal with almost everything, but they had not covered the supernatural in library school."

Tasked with laying off employees, Assistant Director Karen Montgomery of the Amington Library System comes face to face with the supernatural, in the form of Ivy, an evening clerk who just happens to be a vampire, and Charlie, the library's founder and resident ghost. At their insistence, Karen is charged with finding buried faery gold which the library can then use to take care of its financial needs. If it were only that easy. As the stalwart, clear-thinking Karen soon learns, nothing is easy or transparent when dealing with the supernatural, especially when it involves the Wild Hunt and a grief-stricken elven prince.

Whether classed as a short story or a novella, this introductory piece for the Karen Montgomery series is just too short. It leaves you lusting for more, for more delightful prose which is crisp without being abrupt; more delightful narrative which is neither intrusive nor flowery; more delightful characters who emerge developed with clarity and texture. Yet, despite its brevity, Budget Cuts makes an engaging and amusing debut for Assistant Director Karen Montgomery of the Amington Library.
