In Excelsior City trouble finds everybody. Lang Lofton's busy managing his media empire atop the Kryse Building and roaming the night as a masked vigilante. He's got an new problem too: no villains left to defeat. Until his arch-enemy Archetype goes free. And just as the Venus Diamond goes on display at the Supernatural Wonders Museum. Then a deadly new player appears. Coincidence? No.
Another winning story from this prolific writer. The premise here is quirky and engaging, an interesting variation on the genre that might be called "domestic magic." Maybe. It's a funny story that takes a clever and inevitable, though unexpected, turn. If you're tired of the same-old same-old in contemporary fantasy stories, check out this weird and wonderful little gem.
