Tryon Avenue had a witch. Many streets did; it was almost a necessity to local tradition, back when a single block, a single apartment building, was an entire country for a child, complete with history, royalty, a peasant class, endless threats from outsiders, and a rich and varied folklore.

I was not a big fan of this collection. It was definitely just a matter of it not being the type of stories that interests me, I am not a big fan of fantasy set in the current world. The writing was great and the stories were well written but unfortunately not for me.
