The Magic May Return

Hermetic Library fellow T Polyphilus reviews The Magic May Return by Larry Niven.

Larry Niven The Magic May Return

The sequel volume to Niven’s fantasy The Magic Goes Away is of mixed merit. On the whole, however, I liked these short stories somewhat better than the novel that provided their milieu. The best of them was the one that was furthest from the novel’s original plot and characters: Steven Barnes’ “…but fear itself,” which introduced the idea of a secret survival of magic into modern times, with ancient Africa as its headspring.
