Everyone could sometimes use a little magic in their life. And wouldn't it be great if some of the magic shops scattered throughout our cities and small towns actually sold real magic rather than tricks and illusions? Or would it? After all, magic gone wrong could have truly disastrous consequences. And one person's wish might become another person's nightmare.
Fifteen masters of verbal spellcraft explore the endless possibilities in tales both funny and frightening, dark and light, stories which give new meaning to those old sayings: "You get what you pay for..." and "Be careful what you wish for...."
From a real estate purchase that proves to be a supernatural stomping ground...to a magic shop owner who got far more than he paid for...to an author who turns to magic to cure a severe case of writer's block...to a young woman who purchases the -key- to her future...here are deals that will have you looking for a magic shop of your very own....
