World Fantasy Best Collection (nominee)
Magic for Beginners is the highly anticipated second collection of stories from Kelly Link, author of the cult favorite Stranger Things Happen. Here she unfurls an engaging, funny and magical selection of stories with riffs on marriage, cannons, convenience stores, superheros, zombies, and apocalyptic poker parties. Many stories have never before been published; others have previously been published in McSweeney's Mammoth Treasury of Thrilling Tales, Conjunctions, and The Dark, but are collected here for the first time.

Praise for this book

"A set of stories that are by turns dazzling, funny, scary, and sexy, but only when they are not all of those at once. Kelly Link has strangeness, charm and spin to spare. Writers better than this don't happen." - Karen Joy Fowler
