We're Just That Magical

Fairies and goblins have made fodder for urban metaphors before, but we can't help wondering if a new fantasy novel veers into territory that's a little more literal than usual: "Faerie San Francisco feels like a real city, and it's not hard to imagine that mythical creatures and magical glamours lurk in every alley in SOMA and behind every tree in Golden Gate Park, and super-powerful mystical forces are living in rent-controlled apartments in the Tenderloin." Those super-powerful mysticals, always working the system. [io9]
