I have finally got my hands on this lovely book. It’s called ‘Twelve days’ and was released by new publishers, ‘The Patchwork Raven’. Each story in it is linked to the twelve days of Christmas song. OK ! I know I’m late, but I’ve just seen this book and you can read it any time of the year! It’s not just Xmas exclusive! I have a story in it called ‘The Coterie of Magic’.
Each story has it’s its own art work, which was available to buy separately.
I love magic, love it, especially the close up, sleight of hand stuff. That wonder that comes from seeing something happen right before your eyes and no matter how close you look you don’t know how it’s done is terrific. I saw Barry and Stuart at the Edinburgh Fringe a few years ago perform their show. They made a Rubik cube disappear right in front of me, while twirling it! Not that impressive you think, not like making the Statue of Liberty disappear, but this was better, close up magic at its best. My story is, I hope, a funny look at this and at a women’s roll in magic and the lack of female magicians. We need more!
The paperback is available here. We all need a little magic at the moment.
