There’s nothing like the first review of a new year, especially when it’s a good one. Which is why I was pleasantly surprised by Angie Lisle’s recent review of Mountain Magic: Spellbinding Tales of Appalachia, an anthology I happen to have contributed to.
The review is short, but pretty dang sweet. Here’s a snippet:

My contribution, “Glory Hand” features the cantankerous old ghost-breaker John Bass and sees an old acquaintance of his attempt to force him to lead the way to an ancient treasure with unpleasant results.
