Here are six tales of fantasy and wonder to fill you up just right.Tales include:Hell By Any Other Name and To Hell And Back — stories set after the shredding of the veils between the seen and the unseen worlds when the living learned they werent alone. Andy had seen it all, done it all as a human police detective, now, as a ghost, he still works as a private investigator.Magpie — When Sarah finds a beautiful, porcelain bird hidden inside a hollow brick inside her fireplace, she just thinks its odd.

Then her jewelry starts going missing. What will the magpie steal next?True Vision — Devil? Angel? Gabriella has lived all her life following other peoples plans, using their definitions of her body, allowing them to judge her abilities. Finally, though, Gabriella is ready to take matters into her own hands.Slipping the Leash — Twyla learned early how to fight.

The kids knew she was different, but she figured that was just her African-American dad and her Japanese mom. Now she learns just how different she is: shes not even human. How will she balance all these expectations and definitions? Or will she just slip the leash and run?Golden Charms — As a child, Jolene learned she had a gift.

She could see peoples fates: they appeared as a golden charm around the persons neck. She didnt want her gift, though. She just wanted a normal life—a job, a husband, and kids. Three years later, Jolene cant get pregnant. What must she sacrifice to make her dreams come true? And what kind of strange beings in the creole fairy court must she deal with?Leah Cutters first novel, Paper Mage (Roc 2003) is set in China, during the Tang dynasty, around 837 A.D.
