On Sunday summer nights for the past four years, households across the land have turned into True Blood viewing party venues, where folks infatuated with the HBO show's campy, sexually perverse storytelling convene and wish they could sip some of that bottled blood sold at Fangtasia and Merlotte's Bar and Grill.

Here's the perfect gift for them: A Southern-minded cookbook overseen by former True Blood showrunner Alan Ball that offers over 80 recipes and 150 photos of their favorite characters. Help your friends' sixth season bashes (kicking off next June) get even freakier with dishes like Stake and Eggs and I Wanna Snapper in Two and some Dead on the Beach cocktails.
