    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.
