Street Magicks Edited by Paula Guran Diamond Book Distributors Prime Books Comics & Graphic, Sci Fi & Fantasy Pub Date: April 12, 2016
Magic often lies just out of view. Like the animals who adapt to new environments, the formation of cities has changed how we perceive the unknown and unexpected. Within the pages of this amazing anthology, a bevy of fantastic authors remind the reader of the mysterious, beautiful and dangerous magics that lie hidden, camouflaged by cement and steel. From the tale of an artist whose painting frees a man cursed to take the form of a bird to the destruction of a god whose armor allows him to pass any injury on to others, readers are guided through many incredible worlds. Some are unknown and others close to home. With stories by such greats as Neil Gaiman, Elizabeth Bear, Caitlin R Kiernan, and too many others to name, Street Magicks deserves a place of honor on the bookshelf of every fantasy lover.
I received a copy of Street Magicks from the publisher and netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review.
Streets are more than thoroughfares. Cobblestone or concrete, state of mind or situation-streets are catalysts for culture; sources of knowledge and connection, invisible routes to hidden levels of influence. In worlds where magic is real, streets can be full of dangerous shadows or paths to salvation. Wizards walk such streets, monsters lurk in their alleys, demons prowl or strut, doors open to places full of delightful enchantment or seething with sorcery, and truly dead ends abound. This selection of stories-some tales may be rediscoveries, others never encountered on your fictional map-will take you for a wild ride through many realms of imagination.
