NEW RELEASE: Schoolbooks & Sorcery Anthology

Schoolbooks & Sorcery Anthology

QSFer Michael M. Jones is the editor of a new inclusive YA fantasy anthology: Schoolbooks & Sorcery.

“I snagged a few pinches of herbs from the apothecary cabinet in the kitchen and ground them into a paste. The bruised leaves let out their oils, and the air filled with a sweet, green, medicinal smell. Just a small magic, friend-to-bees magic, and it didn’t look like magic unless you knew.”

From “The Delicate Work of Bees” by Emily Horner

“What is the centaur philosophy of magic?”

Clementine cleared her throat, cheeks flushing pink, and said, “That if it were easy, everyone would do it, and that means it must be hard.”

From “Finals” by Seanan McGuire

In this enchanting collection of young adult tales, 20 authors explore the overlap of the mundane and the fantastical, with LGBTQ protagonists juggling the pressures of school and the wonder of magic in its many forms. From entrance tests to final exams, casting spells to breaking curses, these teens seek to claim their place in the world. In these pages, you’ll find gay and lesbian, bisexual and asexual, trans and nonbinary characters, all experiencing sexy, strange, wicked, wonderful, romantic adventures. They deal with bad roommates and bullies, first loves and new friends, all while crafting and inhabiting their ideal identities. Featuring authors such as Seanan McGuire, Cheryl Rainfield, Cecilia Tan, E.C. Myers, Rajan Khanna, and many more. Step inside and experience Schoolbooks & Sorcery

Excerpts

“I snagged a few pinches of herbs from the apothecary cabinet in the kitchen and ground the mint to a paste. The bruised leaves let out their oils, and the air filled with a wet, green, medicinal smell. Just a small magic, friend-to-bees magic, and it didn’t look like magic unless you knew.”
