AUTHOR'S PREFERRED EDITION! A cozy paranormal romance by USA Today bestselling author Mindy Klasky. Librarian Jane Madison’s life has turned upside down since she discovered she’s a witch. The local coven has issued an invitation she can’t refuse—work a spell to protect their new safehold or lose her beloved arcane books, her sassy feline familiar, and her brooding astral protector, David Montrose. But the coven’s test isn’t the only challenge Jane faces. There’s her new boyfriend, a handsome Brit who seems determined to distract her from magic. And a witchy friend who has a distinctly loose grasp on arcane ethics. Not to mention a long-absent mother, a mojito-loving best friend, and a boss who expects Jane to step up to the next level in library management. Is sorcery the answer to all of Jane’s problems? Or is magic only another name for disaster?

“I snagged a few pinches of herbs from the apothecary cabinet in the kitchen and ground them into a paste. The bruised leaves let out their oils, and the air filled with a sweet, green, medicinal smell. Just a small magic, friend-to-bees magic, and it didn't look like magic unless you knew.” From “The Delicate Work of Bees” by Emily Horner “What is the centaur philosophy of magic?” Clementine cleared her throat, cheeks flushing pink, and said, “That if it were easy, everyone would do it, and that means it must be hard.” From “Finals” by Seanan McGuire In this enchanting collection of young adult tales, 20 authors explore the overlap of the mundane and the fantastical, with LGBTQ protagonists juggling the pressures of school and the wonder of magic in its many forms.

This is a comprehensive sourcebook on the world’s most famous vampire, with more than 700 citations of domestic and international Dracula films, television programs, documentaries, adult features, animated works, and video games, as well as nearly a thousand comic books and stage adaptations. While they vary in length, significance, quality, genre, moral character, country, and format, each of the cited works adopts some form of Bram Stoker’s original creation, and Dracula himself, or a recognizable vampiric semblance of Dracula, appears in each. The book includes contributions from Dacre Stoker, David J. Skal, Laura Helen Marks, Dodd Alley, Mitch Frye, Ian Holt, Robert Eighteen-Bisang, and J. Gordon Melton.
