In life the creatures had been half-gost, half devil, but Tommy’s spell had made them entirely solid, had dragged them flailing and screaming [...]

Nebula Nominated “The Native Star” is a Lovely, Reconstruction-Era Success!


M.K. Hobson’s The Native Star is positively saturated in personality and wit. Upon opening this book I was immediately charmed by Hobson’s style of writing. The Native Star takes place in 1876 and she has nailed both the time period and culture while simultaneously adding a layer of historical magic as if it had always existed [...]

I was standing in Half Price Books with my typical pile of hidden treasure securely nestled within my handy red basket. I had made the rounds through the sci/fi and fantasy shelves, done some perusing through any new affordable options in leather-bound classics, and had finally made my way over to the comics.
