Add magic to misdeeds and you get Crime Spells, an anthology of crime stories with the underlying premise of magic. Some of these criminals are magical, some are not; some motives are magic-related, some are merely human; sometimes the human judicial system prevails; sometimes a magical one and sometimes the wrongdoer gets away. In each of these sixteen tales, well-known and little-known science fiction writers have successfully crossed genres, mixing magic with mayhem. From official release/information:
Product Description: Sixteen original stories about magic-fueled crimes and those who investigate them. When magic is used for criminal purposes, all sorts of ethical and logistical questions arise beyond the realm of everyday law and order.
