“Robert Louis Stevenson tells us that ‘we’ve never made a statue worthy of our dreams,’ and that’s happily true, because it keeps writers like Amy hard at work carving new statues… watching her work, and seeing the results, has sent me down to the quarry for a new block of marble myself more than once. Amy’s a prodigious dreamer, and she’s got some statues that are about as worthy as they come.”
— James P. Blaylock
author of Homunculus and The Last Coin.

From the concrete canyons of the modern city to the halls of ancient kings, from deepest ocean to cosy homes in sprawling suburbs, nowhere and no one is immune to magic. But as many forms as magic takes, there always arrives a hero to accept the challenge, and sometimes, to pay the price.
