Tanya Huff’s beloved character Magdalene, the most powerful wizard in the world, has previously appeared in various magazines and collections. This year, Magdalene makes the jump to digital for the first time in Tanya Huff’s latest short story collection, Third Time Lucky: And Other Stories of the Most Powerful Wizard in the World.
There’s a lot of responsibility involved with being the most powerful wizard in the world, and Magdelene wants nothing to do with any of it. Lazy, lusty, and more likely to be found lying in the sun than casting runes or sacrificing unfortunate goats, she’d really rather avoid dealing with challenges, errant apprentices, demons, dragons, death, and bureaucracy.
These seven stories include “Third Time Lucky”, Tanya Huff’s first professional sale to George Scithers at AMAZING STORIES. Thirty years, thirty novels, eighty-three short stories, and one television show later, this is where it all began.
Stories included are The Last Lesson; Be It Ever So Humble; Mirror, Mirror, on the Lam; Third Time Lucky; And Who is Joah?; Nothing Up Her Sleeve; and We Two May Meet.
Each story is accompanied by a brand-new author note.
Edit: THIRD TIME LUCKY is now on sale! You can order your ebook today at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, and the iBookstore. If you’re one of the few people who purchased the long out-of-print collection Stealing Magic, which has many of the same stories, then you should check out Tanya’s many other ebook collections available as JABberwocky ebooks!
