My Big Fat Supernatural Honeymoon-P.N. Elrod (editor)

My Big Fat Supernatural Honeymoon
P.N. Elrod (editor)
St. Martin’s, Jan 2008, $13.95
ISBN: 9780312375041

This follow up to the “I dos” of MY BIG FAT SUPERNATURAL WEDDING contains nine engaging paranormal honeymoons from well known fantasists. All are lighthearted entertainment as the couples (representing a wide scope of non human characters) find supernatural intrusion interfering in their respective honeymoon. Readers will note that Dresden in "Heorot" by Jim Butcher (aside: not on his honeymoon) and P.N. Elrod’s Fleming in "Her Mother's Daughter" appear; however, fans of the series of these two stars will find the format limiting compared to the novels. Still with works from Kelley Armstrong (the most romantic entry), Rachel Caine, Katie MacAlister, Marjorie M. Liu, Ronda Thompson, Caitlin Kittredge, and Lilith Saintcrow as well as Mr. Butcher and Ms. Elrod, romantic fantasy fans will enjoy this fun anthology even with no otherworldly shattering entry.
