Story of the Week: "The Magician's House" by Meghan McCarron

I'm still on an August blogging break, but I wanted to quickly highlight my new review in The Fix Online of last month's fiction in Strange Horizons. In particular, I want to praise the story "The Magician's House" by Meghan McCarron. Originally published in two parts in Strange Horizons, this tale is both beautifully written, amazingly compelling, and extremely disturbing. I predict it will make many of the year's best lists. For more details on why I've selected this as my new story of the week, check out my complete review on The Fix.
