There's a lot of responsibility involved with being the most powerful wizard in the world, and Magdelene wants nothing to do with any of it.

These seven stories include Third Time Lucky, Tanya Huff's first professional sale to George Scithers at Amazing Stories. Thirty years, thirty novels, eighty-three short stories, and one television show later, this is where it all began.
Stories included are The Last Lesson; Be It Ever So Humble; Mirror, Mirror, on the Lam; Third Time Lucky; And Who is Joah?; Nothing Up Her Sleeve; and We Two May Meet. Long-time Tanya Huff fans may recognize many of these stories from the long out-of-print collection Stealing Magic. Each story here is accompanied by an author note, brand new for this release.
