Uptown Local and Other Interventions

$5.99
This collection gathers together for the first time some of Diane Duane's most popular short work -- stories that range across time and space, with a couple of visits to her best-known milieu, the seminalYoung Wizards young adult / urban fantasy series.

Uptown Local features eleven long and short works from the last decade and beyond, including:
  • In The Company of Heroes -- A billionaire "living the dream" goes on a desperate quest for the one thing he needs to make his life perfect: a very special comic book...
  • The Rizzoli Bag -- A sad young man in a Roman cafe is offered a once-in-a-lifetime bargain...
  • Out of the Frying Pan -- The life of a part-time witch working in a shopping mall is turned upside down in a day...
  • The Queen and the Thief and the Dragon -- A (fairy) tale of the True West, and a young monarch's solution to a thorny diplomatic problem...
  • Bears -- An ancient sorrow (with a modern twist) wanders through the tumult of a pre-Lenten street carnival...
  • The Fix -- In the dark guts of Rome's Colosseum, a slave boy with an impossible dream becomes entangled in the machinations of immortals...
  • Herself -- In the heart of Dublin, something is killing the People of the Hills -- and it's going to take Ireland's only superhero to stop it...
  • Hopper Painting -- Desolation and redemption in a midnight diner, as trapped and desperate characters struggle with the soul of the artist who created them...
  • The Back Door -- Two terrorists meet in Zurich to carry out a very unusual heist with a confederate who's more dangerous than they imagine...

...And of course, the title story, beloved and sought after for a quarter century by Young Wizards fans, and finally available in an ebook -- along with the only other Young Wizards short story, Theobroma.

On this ebook we also offer a generic .mobi / generic .epub bundle, for those of you who have both kinds of reading device / software. The price for the bundle is the same as for the single book.
