It would seem that I just can't stay away from the anthologies…here's another one! I read one earlier this summer called My Big Fat Supernatural Wedding compiled by the same editor. Liked it well enough so I put the next book, My Big Fat Supernatural Honeymoon, on my To Be Read pile. Looking for something fun to read, I picked it up this morning. Finished it just after the kids went to bed.
I liked this one better than Wedding. The stories were easier to get into and there weren't any that stood out as being exceptionally bad. Of course, I was mainly interested in the Jim Butcher story -- which revealed some rather interesting background information about a character from the Dresden Files that I've always wondered about -- and some of the other authors were familiar, too. And despite this being a collection of stories about honeymoons, there wasn't too much page space wasted on detailed accounts of the characters making sexytimes.
"Erm…" Raphael was obviously too disconcerted by the fact that he was being hugged by an Elizabethan ghost to rally much conversational lines. "Do I know you?"
