The Raven King


"Sir, As a member of the Learned Society of York Magicians, I have often regretted that modern magicians are content to study the history and theory of their subject, and that practical magic has been absent from these islands for more than two centuries. So it affords me the greatest satisfaction to announce to the Public that this melancholoy state of affairs is now at an end."

John Segundus Esq.
The Daily Raven – Letter to the Editor
March 9, 1807

Today... a book recommendation: Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell. It's a great novel and certainly as mythic a tale as any I've read in a long time. For a story about fairies it's incredibly... real.

I really enjoyed this book and hope the muses speak to Susanna Clarke again soon.

Have you yet read "The Time Traveler's Wife"?
