Darn. I've been gone a long time. The parents took me home to convalesce and the broadband signal at home was intermittent. Plus, the nearest internet cafe with a good DSL connection was 40 minutes away by car, and the parents would not let me leave the house alone and stay out for more than an hour.
Anyway, now I'm back. Today's teaser is from another of my favorite authors. Yes, she and her crazy hero grew on me (although the latter does not, in fact, grow at all). This book won the Hugo Award for Best Novel in 1995, how cool is that?
Bothari-Jesek seemed an agent of some evil fairy, which had snatched away the beloved Miles and replaced him with this pallid, pudgy changeling. He choked down a hysterical giggle as the sardonic mocker in the back of his brain called out, Hi, Mom and Dad, I'm home....

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!
