OYSTERS, PEARLS AND MAGIC

an original premise

By A. M. Harte, editor, author of Theatre of Horrors

Sep 4, 2009: I only read the prologue (which stands at a lengthy 4,000 words!) but my initial impression is that Oysters, Pearls and Magic has an intriguing premise.

It is based in an alternate universe, a place where gender roles are strictly defined: women fish for oysters and pearls, and men "curl light" (or cast magic) to power the boats and so on. The author has clearly given the setting a lot of thought, and the writing strongly evokes a small fishing village. [more . . .]

Anything outside this is either out of scope or doesn’t exist in this world, which of the two isn’t always clear. The protagonist is well adapted to and perfectly happy in such a world.

Don’t assume this is going to change, [more . . .]
