The Magic Shop, edited by Denise Little

The Magic Shop, edited by Denise Little

The theme of this collection of stories revolved around (wait for it!) magic shops. With the exception of Mel Odom’s Serpent of the Lakes, I liked every tale in it. The Assassin’s Dagger by Kristine Katheryn Rusch has the most interesting setup: corporations are taking over traditional magic shops across the world, but not all these places are happy about it. There were no fantastic adventures here, but none truly awful ones either. The Fairest by Von Jocks was my favorite of the bunch, but they were all readable.

First Sentence (from the introduction):
Magic is a subject that fascinates us all, no matter what our personal beliefs.
