With Right Hand Magic, Nancy A. Collins starts a new urban fantasy series titled Golgotham. In this series, a would-be artist named Tate, who needs a cheap place to live in New York, moves into Golgotham, a little known, seven-by-nine block neighborhood of Manhattan squeezed between Broadway and the East River. Just your average neighborhood, only with witches, werewolves, centaurs, leprechauns, fauns, merfolk (over by the East River, of course) and all kinds of supernatural creatures.
To promote the release of this new series, which will be published by Roc (Penguin) on December 7, a new and rather nice looking website has been released, showing everything there is to know about the Golgotham neighbourhood.
Here’s their blurb for Right Hand Magic:
Like most Manhattanites, aspiring artist Tate can’t resist a good rental deal-even if it’s in the city’s strangest neighborhood, Golgotham, where for centuries werewolves, centaurs, and countless other creatures have roamed the streets.
Her new landlord is a sorcerer name Hexe, who is determined to build his reputation without using dark, left-hand magic. As Tate is drawn into Hexe’s fascinating world, they both find that the right hand does not always know what the left hand is doing-and avoiding darkness is no easy trick…
