Mortal weddings can go south in a hurry but if the bride and groom - or their relatives - happen to be supernaturally inclined, there's no telling what sort of metaphysical chaos might ensue. Nine of the paranormal genre's fan favorites conjure up some truly out-of-this-world wedding shenanigans in My Big Fat Supernatural Wedding.

Here are a few of the highlights: Harry Dresden and friends are back in Jim Butcher's Something Borrowed: this time they're desperately trying to save the lives of two werewolves who are targeted by vengeful fairies hours before tying the knot. Rachel Caine's Dead Man's Chest is a wonderfully imagined modern day pirate tale that sees a plain Jane swept off her feet and onto a pirate cruise by her hunky male model boyfriend. What neither of them realizes is that the pirates and the ship have been cursed - and are about as authentic as pirates can get. Sherrilyn Kenyon offers up another of her popular Dark Hunter tales in A Hard Day's Night-Searcher, where an ancient dark hunter and an anal retentive squire get on the wrong side of the rules that govern their kind - and also manage to annoy an ancient vampire just as he's about to tie the knot. And Susan Krinard conjures up an intriguing alternate reality in her story, Or Forever Hold Your Peace, a nifty little mystery set in a Victorian England where all manner of magical abilities are the norm and where two childhood friends race against the clock to rescue a young woman who's been ripped from the arms of her fiancée.

Other contributors include L.A. Banks, P.N. Elrod, Esther Friesner, Lori Handeland and Charlaine Harris. Their stories range from a modern day Hatfield and McCoy feud to a reincarnated Elvis popping in as the wedding singer. My Big Fat Supernatural Wedding is an imaginative and fun - often laugh-out-loud funny - reading experience, that may leave you re-thinking plans to attend an October wedding!
