REVIEW

"Nine stories by top authors in the fantasy field, and not a bad one in the bunch."

Every bride knows planning a wedding is stressful enough. But when one or both parties are a bit otherworldly...well, Hell's Bells. These nine short stories, all by top authors in the fantasy field, offer up the "what if" in wedding planning when cursed pirates, avenging faeries, clannish curses, as well as your good old ordinary vampires and werewolves, get involved.

It's tough to choose a favorite among so many tasty offerings, but I was partial to "Dead Man's Chest" by Rachel Caine with its Captain Jack Sparrow-like sexy sea captain. Jim Butcher, always good for fun and frolic with the various Beasties living, loving and getting even in Chicago, also contributes a whopping good story involving two werewolves in love and a fairy who holds a grudge in his Harry Dresden story "Something Borrowed." Even for the non-Elvis fans among us, "All Shook Up" by editor P. N. Elrod is a standout. Sherrilyn Kenyon, Charlaine Harris, Lori Handeland, L. A. Banks, Esther M. Friesner and Susan Krinard round out the collection, each providing a solid contribution. This anthology has something for everyone -- not a bad story in the bunch.

SUMMARY

Werewolves, vampires, witches, voodoo, Elvis---and weddings

**2007 PEARL WINNER - BEST ANTHOLOGY**

An “ordinary” wedding can get crazy enough, so can you imagine what happens when otherworldly creatures are involved? Nine of the hottest authors of paranormal fiction answer that question in this delightful collection of supernatural wedding stories. What’s the seating plan when rival clans of werewolves and vampires meet under the same roof? How can a couple in the throes of love overcome traps set by feuding relatives---who are experts at voodoo? Will you have a good marriage if your high-seas wedding is held on a cursed ship? How do you deal with a wedding singer who’s just a little too good at impersonating Elvis?
