I’m reading Magic City: Recent Spells (ed. Paula Guran) and have a tough choice for favorite creation of the week:
1) Scott Lynch’s library (“In the Stacks”)
“Yes, this place has done its very best to kill the pair of us. But the books were returned to the shelves.” (176)
2) Elizabeth Bear’s story “The Slaughtered Lamb”
Werewolf drag queen . . . that’s all that needs to be said there.
