Ever wonder what the wizards who aren't battling dark lords, or teaching the next generation spells and potions, do for a living? DAW's latest anthology, Wizards, Inc., gives you an idea. The wizards and witches in this book dabble in magic, sure, but it's less of a heroic calling and more of a, well, job. And that's the major thread woven through each of the tales in Wizards, Inc. We've all got to make a living somehow; these folks are just going about it a bit differently. There are wizards who use their skills doing corporate security work, a small business owner struggling to pay the bills, and a research and development firm that specializes in the defense against criminal wizards. Those are only a few examples of the kinds of wizarding careers laid out in the 15 stories DAW has pulled together, a collection that mostly works.

From official release/information:

Book Description: 15 original stories about those who earn their living through spellcraft... From a boy who discovers life can be an illusion...to a man who maintains company security through enchantment...to a young woman who inherits a real magic shop...to a gambler who needs a sure way to beat the odds...to a woman who creates unique chocolates-here are 15 imaginative tales that run the whole gamut of wizardly professions.
