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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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. 🙂

  3. 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.
