My Big Fat Supernatural Honeymoon
Yes, the girl and I managed a library run (to the GOOD library) on Friday. It took more time and energy than expected, of course, but we got a bunch of very good books.

I read My Big Fat Supernatural Honeymoon last night, with much giggling. The stories were a bit uneven (normal for an anthology), but worthwhile overall.

I especially liked "Heorot," the Harry Dresden piece from Jim Butcher. I love the way he brings in mythology from so many different cultures.

Kelly Armstrong's "Stalked" was fun, too. Her werewolves are just more wolfish than most, in my opinion.

P.N. Elrod's "Her Mother's Daughter" wasn't bad at all. I've obviously missed some of her Jack Fleming novels, and I'm looking forward to catching up.

I want to find some of Marjorie M. Liu's longer works, as "Where the Heart Lives" isn't the first of her short stories that have impressed me. What's even better is that WtHL is a total departure from the earlier stories I remember.

    I miss Pines! I don’t know of a loca­tion any­where near us.

    Gwin­nett is a much bet­ter sys­tem than Dekalb, so I have a non-res­i­dent card there. I’ve nev­er had access to Atlanta-Fulton.

    Some­one or some list had rec­om­mend­ed P.N. Elrod books to me and I can’t remem­ber why or when, but when I went look­ing for them they were hard to find. Now I have been remind­ed again and I will have to remem­ber who, what and why again so that I can remem­ber if I want to pur­sue it further. 🙂

    She has sev­er­al dif­fer­ent series, but I’ve only read books from one. They tend to have dry humor tossed in with the mystery/​fantasy/​vampire thing. The Jack Flem­ing books are set in the 30s, with a “hard-boiled detec­tive” who gets mur­dered in the very first book.
