My teaser this week is from The Serpent of Venice by Christopher Moore. The Fool from Fool is now in Venice and disrupting things along with his sidekick Drool and his pet monkey Jeff. Christopher Moore uses elements from Shakespeare and Poe and makes them his own in his twisty way.
This scene is when the Fool wakes up after being slipped a mickey, while he is being walled in by one of his betrayers.
"Not poisoned? said I. "Shame I was enjoying my resurrection. I had hoped to come back taller, but then tall as well as roguishly handsome would be gilding the lily wouldn't it." pp 16-17
I haven't gotten far into the book yet, but so far so good. I usually enjoy Moore's twisted sense of humor. Applying it to Shakespeare and Poe just makes it more delicious.
So, what's your Teaser for this week? Please leave it or a link in the comments so we can check it out. Happy Reading!
