As usual for December, no books are reviewed so as not to fuel the commercialization of the holiday season.
Here we take note of a property shared by all the novels reviewed in The Science of Magic series this previous five months.
If you need to give a gift, an Amazon gift card is a neat way. A person with an Amazon account can just put the number from this card into their account, and the money will wait there until they order something and be applied in whole or in part to their order. No hassles, no time limits, no pressure.
