Mountain Magic

by David Drake, Eric Flint, Ryk E. Spoor, Henry Kuttner
Release date: 2004
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy, anthology


Evil men and evil magic are poised to prey on the people of the hamlets and hollows of Appalachia: witches, demons, and criminals of more than one century. But the mountain folk have defenders, too, as strange and varied as the dangers that threaten them:

David Drake's unforgettable OLD NATHAN the Wizard, a backwoodsman who talks to animals and who'll fight the Devil himself if he must.

Henry Kuttner's grimly hilarious HOGBEN FAMILY, some of whom aren't entirely human — and others who're entirely inhuman.

Eric Flint and Ryk E. Spoor's SLADES, whose uneasy coexistence with underground spirits is about to end in an earthquake that'll wipe humanity off the surface of four states.

Magic, mutants, and mountaineers mixing in adventures that range from eerie to side-splittingly funny.
