Teaser Tuesday: My Big Fat Supernatural Wedding

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read.
  • Open to a random page.
  • Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page.
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn't give away too much. You don't want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!

I missed doing this the past couple weeks, mainly because I forgot it was Tuesday was in between books. But this week, I am ready to go! For some reason, I've gotten into reading collections of short stories featuring some of my favorite authors. This book was the latest in that trend. My Big Fat Supernatural Wedding has tales of nuptial chaos from big names like Jim Butcher, Charlaine Harris, and P.N. Elrod . There are tales zombie pirates on a wedding cruise, spell-casting relatives attempting to deter young love, a vampire marrying a werewolf, and a mythic goddess bringing the wedding ceremony to an ethereal halt. I got it for the Jim Butcher story but I think I might check into some of Esther Friesner and Susan Krinard books because I thought their contributions were pretty good. Actually, the teaser is from Ms. Friesner's tale.

Here's the Teaser:
"Although the tranquil surface of a pond reflects the silver beauty of the moon, that is no guarantee against it teeming with alligators. A smattering of caution would determine whether you came away from the encounter with a haiku or a bloody stump where your right hand used to be."
- pg 158, "The Wedding of Wylda Serene" by Esther M. Friesner, My Big Fat Supernatural Wedding, edited by P.N. Elrod
