Modern Magick, Volume 1
Can British magick survive?
As the pace of modern life accelerates, the old ways wither and die. But to the Society for Magickal Heritage, that just isn’t good enough.
The Witch: Friend to the unicorns, lover of pancakes, and wielder of potent artefacts, star agent Cordelia “Ves” Vesper will stop at nothing — okay, very little — to drag ancient magicks back out of the grave.
The Waymaster: New recruit Jay Patel has some rare and powerful arts at his disposal. With a penchant for old books and motorbikes in near equal measure, he’s a force to be reckoned with.
The Necromancer: Prankster Zareen Dalir may be high-spirited but she’s got a darker side. A much, much darker side. Head of the Toil and Trouble division, Zar’s the best kind of bad news.
The Baron: Is Baron Alban the handsomest troll alive or... forget it, yes. Yes, he is. But he’s not just a pretty face. With the powerful Troll Court at his back and a smile to slay an army, Alban’s a staunch ally.
Join these four champions, the enigmatic “Milady” of the Society, and the sentient house they call Home as they fight to keep magick alive!
This compendium brings you the first three wild adventures all in one: The Road to Farringale, Toil and Trouble, and The Striding Spire.

Let The Chips Fall Where They May
Never underestimate the power of a bag of chips.
Once upon a time, long, long time ago — longish, anyway — I was a young, hopeful, splendidly ignorant Ves, and to be honest with you I probably shouldn’t have been allowed out unattended.
On this particular occasion, I had a job inter……
