Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Having studied magic, witchcraft, manifesting and things that go bump in the night, I've written a few short pieces about how people encounter the threads of magic that flow through the mundane world.

Though the Veil is thinnest on Samhain, it's never very thick,and in some places is hardly there at all.That is where the mundane begins to dance.

Writing about fantasy events in the so-called real world makes it more fun for me to live here and to speculate on how and why people manage to create the worlds where we live. I'm making mine more magical, and writing is the strongest magic of all.

From the Inside Flap

No one is safe if not aware that magic is afoot. A cat, a genie, a fool, a crone, and an anthropologist experience life-altering moments when they dance to the music of magic.

I wish this book was longer. Compiled from a few short stories dealing with magic, it reads like a set of beautiful long poems.

If this was a novel, I wouldn't have liked the "flowery" language. I always say, "get on with the story." However, in such short works as these, the mundane does become the magical. For example (two of many I noted):

"She pulled the gibbering fears through her heart and into the earth below her, like a rod grounding lightning safely into the earth, where they would become life energy."

or

"Wizards know that white magic is poetry, and black magic is anything that works."

I've read some of Ms. Babb's other books. All whimsical, but closer to childrens' fairy tales. These stories are beautifully written little gems.

More, I say, MORE! Well done, Charlotte Babb. - Good! I see this is a series.

I have to say I really enjoyed this anthology! The stories while short were all well written! I look forward to reading more from this author! Though I can't help but wonder who the genie was afraid of....

The author's knowledge of folklore and mythology gives these stories more depth than we usually see. This is a well crafted fun read for lovers of fairy tales, with enough humor to make it fun.
