In the modern world, paranormal dangers lurk all around. When there is no chosen one to be found, no altruistic half-vampire around, and no superheros flying overhead, it's up to average people to do the business of defeating evil. They have no powers, no prophecies, and all the odds are stacked against them.
In this short story collection, regular folk find themselves up against nightmare creatures, conniving warlocks, and all manner of supernatural dangers. All set in contemporary environments. Read these nine new tales of magic and adventure today.
This anthology contains the following stories:

In The Forests Of The Night by Misha Burnett
Politics. Power always brought out the politicians, looking for an angle to drive in a wedge and gain some leverage. Magic was power, money was power, and this case was dripping with both. From the case files of Erik Rugar comes another tale of magic, mystery, and a detective who is always over his head.
La Bruja by Carlos Carrasco

The Undying Past by Dale W. Glaser

Green Shadow by Jason J. McCuiston
