Fantastic America is a gentle guide that brings a modern Earth much
like the one we are familiar with into focus. The weird creeps in page after
page. It’s still Earth, but the world you recognize is changing. By the end of
the book, you can see cracks are forming in solid ideas we’ve taken for
The books that follow expand the weird at an exponential rate, until the
midpoint of the series. From that point on, it will be a matter of holding on
to what we’ve known, or letting go completely. That’s a personal choice for
each character to make, whether they embrace magic, despise it, or just want to
be left alone.
That last option won’t be an option anymore. In a world polarized and
distorted by raw magic, there is no middle ground. Magic, or more specifically,
magical creatures and forces won’t leave any bystanders. The characters adapt
and survive, or they don’t and they die. That doesn’t mean they have to give up
who they are, just that they can’t hide and hope it will all go away. Magic is
here to stay.
Buckle up buttercup, it’s gonna be a wild ride!
