On a back alley in Toronto’s Kensington Market, above the Heaven & Earth Bakery, there’s an apartment with a room for rent. The rent is negotiable. The location varies. Humans need not apply.
For Nick, who calls 7C home, real life can be a lot weirder than his friends’ role-playing games. Between regular stints at his job delivering bread and cinnamon buns to the otherworldly population of the city, these days he finds himself dodging attacks from vampire-hunting tourists, possessed pigeons, and his boss’s unborn child. He really shouldn’t waste time worrying whether his roommate Takehiko likes him—dude’s not even human.
Come to think of it, neither is Nick.
Welcome to a world of obnoxious fairies and bored vampires, satyrs who love ’80s music and demons who play video games. Welcome to 7C. Good luck finding the bathroom.
The Tenants of 7C is the first book in the Heaven & Earth series. It contains three stories: “The Tenants of 7C,” “The Siege of 7C,” and “7C Goes Down,” plus bonus pages.
