Re: Whose Stone is it Anyway?

I'd not picked up on it at all until I started botting and asked what PS/SS meant! Oh. Philosophers Stone and Socerers Stone. I prefer Philosopher's Stone because it's easier to say. A google search 'define sorcerery' the art, practices, or spells of a person who is supposed to exercise supernatural...

The Awareness of Magic

Magic, the awareness and beingness of magic, comes in stages to folks -- if it comes at all. When does a person become aware of the existence of magic, that there actually might be such a thing? When does a person choose to believe that magic is actually real? And when does a person accept that magi...

Re: Alanna, Chapters 3 and 4

In a way, these chapters galloped by too fast. I found myself racing through them, wanting to find out what happens next, because, while interesting in and of themselves, they set up the scene for more to happen later on. (I've read the book before ... but not recently!) So Alanna meets a bully. Som...
