A collection of stories on the topic of magic from the novel viewpoint that it's more than Harry Potter, rabbits in hats, and princes as frogs. That it hides in the subtle guise of modern science as well as the more common arcane. As much the stuff of dreams as the tightening of a bolt with a wrench. Something for the mystic as well as the skeptic, who can then sit down together and compare notes.
