Sigh, didn't get to post this till after work. How's everybody? Things are slowing down some, while the next big crisis hasn't hit yet, so trying to relax a bit. Yay, I has time to bloghop now. Thanks to everyone who has been reading my teasers ^_^
I went bookstore hopping last Sunday, and found this lovely book. It was beyond my price range but I had to have it... it has a lot of awesome authors in it. Neil Gaiman, Orson Scott Card, Ursula LeGuin, and the author of the story whence today's teaser is taken, Jane Yolen. Ah, bliss.
"Just take my children," Papa said. "And if anything goes wrong, cut off my hands and feet and bury me at Mill's Cross, under the stone."
-p. 115, "Mama Gone," by Jane Yolen, from New Magics, an anthology of today's fantasy edited by Patrick Nielsen Hayden
Teaser Tuesdays 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 too much away! 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 teasers!
