I apologize for the long silence. I’m a bit behind on my reading for various reasons, including still recovering from this summer.


What magical beings and places lurk in the Granite State? What adventures await the adventurer or the unwary. Dragons hide in various places, or perhaps the local university runs a captive breeding program for griffons. What beast awaits the new motorcyclist at Bike Week? Perhaps you will stumble across a gnome trying to halt progress.


Okay, full disclosure, I’m not fond of anthologies. Because of the variety of talents and tastes, I find them hard to get through. This one took some time. However, I’m glad I finished. While there are some stories I had to struggle with, others were indeed magical. A Gaslight Fantasy story about magical fibers at the turn of the century Amoskeag Mills. There is Eliza, who saves her family from a rockslide and becomes part of the forest. I can’t review twenty-five stories in this one review, but I can say that if you want to see what lurks in New Hampshire, there is something for every taste of adventure. I just there were more dragons.
