About Joshua Cox-Steib

I'm an avid reader, and have been ever since I fell into it by an oddity of fate in the sixth grade. My best friend wouldn't quit talking to me about a fantasy series that he was reading. I borrowed the first book from him to guard myself from any further ranting (he couldn't very well talk about parts of the series I hadn't read yet, could he?). I ended up reading the book almost by accident. I couldn't stop reading, and I still can't.
My wife and I live in Tulsa, Oklahoma - along with our small army of pets, and our books.

About the Series: Modern Magic
Long ago a mighty spell was cast. Merlin, the greatest magician to have yet lived, summoned forth a single drop of blood from each living human, and upon this ocean of blood he cast a potent curse with the greatest of intentions. His spell changed the nature of mankind's interaction with the arcane forever. With this curse he insulated the species against the very fabric of the arcane. Future generations became all but oblivious to the presence of magic.

In time all that was magic became forgotten by the masses, and it had to be discovered anew by each magician as the generations rolled by. But once the magic was touched it shattered the protections upon that individual, and brought the pervasive realities of the unbelievable into stark view all around them. A new community of magicians, in all their varieties, began to form throughout this new world. They formed out of necessity for survival. With the entrance of magic into their lives, so too came the monsters.

This is a series of short stories delving into the adventure and mystery of modern magic. There's an entire world of magic out there. A dream just waiting for those who will look, and make it real again...
