Magic Musings

by Maxwell Conroe

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Maxwell Conroe is a master at making readers think about existential issues and stirs our imagination with surprisingness in literature. "Magic Musings" offers twenty-five new literary essays and short stories. Maxwell's quest in his latest story bundle is to invoke magic sensations in readers of his prose. In a daring pastiche of 'A Hanging' and 'Shooting an Elephant', now you, the reader, will be both hanged and shot by Orwell, all the same.
In Magic Musings, Maxwell Conroe revives many classic story-heroes: Alice in Wonderland, Sherlock Holmes, Auguste Dupin, Hercule Poirot. Next, he goes off into the space of creative madness — 'Newtonian Dreams' portrays Isaac Newton covered in tar and feathers while being chased down the Halls of the Royal Society by two old adversaries: Gottfried Leibniz and Robert Hooke — it's brilliant!
