Street Magicks by Paula Guran

Here's a nice collection of fantasy tales for the connoisseur of magic tales.  They are varied, most of them have a punch of some kind in them, and they aren't boring.

Prime Books and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published, so you can grab a copy now.

I didn't find one story in this collection that disappointed me.  Some weren't my flavor, but they all were written well.

My two favorites were Jim Butcher's Last Call (his stories sound like noir) and Speechless in Seattle by Lisa Silverthorne.  They are not at all alike but they were definitely entertaining reading.

Here's what you get Contents:
  • Introduction: "Practices and Paved Paths" by Paula Guran
