This Week's Story: "The Magician's Apprentice"

by Tamsyn Muir, appearing in Lightspeed Magazine

Read Tamsyn Muir’s “The Magician’s Apprentice”

Welcome to October everyone. In celebration, this week’s story is just a little scary. A little dark. Despite the title, it’s not high fantasy—it’s dark urban fantasy, probably, about a teen girl, her master magician, and the prices they pay for magic.

“The Magician’s Apprentice” first appeared in Weird Tales in 2012, but was reprinted in Lightspeed in September 2017. The author has just released a book with Tor which I cannot wait to read.
