"So much more than the garden-variety shapeshifter v. vampire story, as the hero engages with the day-to-day realities of his post-transformation self..."
From the Author
Red Magic developed from a another character who refused to stop talking. This time it was Christoph, the rakish bad-boy of "Mozart's Wife". Dispatched in that story to one of his family's estates, Christoph was about to finally marry and do what his father wanted – produce an heir. Wondering just exactly how that was going to turn out, I began the tale of Christoph and Caterina in a marriage that is, on both sides, more forced than "arranged".
From Artemis and Apollo to Frey and Freya, on through all known pantheons, there are magical twins, so this sparked the tale of Mina and Goran, the von Hagen's first born. "Black Magic" is Goran's tale, dealing with the ancient secrets of his home place. Threads which were part of the original Red Magic story are elaborated, especially when some very old "chickens" come home to roost, turning the lives of the brother and sister upside down. I wanted very much to link the shape-shifter experience to the prehistoric – a.k.a. sublime – images discovered on the walls of caves all over the world. In "Black Magic," both the horned god and the wolf man enter our reality.
