These sixteen urban fantasy tales are whimsical and though this reviewer suggests spreading the entries over several days as the theme is somewhat limiting. Each contribution is well written and especially quirky like Mike Resnick¿s sure bet ¿The Hex Is In¿. Fans will enjoy the exploits of these heroes like the star of ¿Web Gin House¿ by Phaedra Weldon as she leaves her body to spy on others or the ¿Witness to the Fall¿ by Joseph E. Lake. No clinkers, this is a lighthearted romp as the authors seem to enjoy writing unusual ¿Eye Opening¿ (by Jason Schmetzer) short stories in which ¿The Wish of the Wish (by Robert T. Jeschonek) is for more CRIME SPELLS.
