July 1, 2014: New edition!
Random House has just re-released Magic for Beginners with a newly designed cover and an added conversation between Joe Hill and Kelly Link.

Perfect for readers of George Saunders, Karen Russell, Neil Gaiman, and Aimee Bender, Magic for Beginners is an exquisite, dreamlike dispatch from a virtuoso storyteller who can do seemingly anything. Kelly Link reconstructs modern life through an intoxicating prism, conjuring up unforgettable worlds with humor and humanity. These stories are at once ingenious and deeply moving. They leave the reader astonished and exhilarated.

Kelly’s new collection, Get in Trouble, will be published February 10, 2015.

“A unique brew of pirates and wizards, undead babysitters and duelling librarians, Kelly Link’s new short-story collection is dark, sexy and hilarious.”
The New Statesman

“These stories are fantastic, in both the literal and colloquial sense of the term, and though written for young adults, are every bit as evocative for adult readers.”
Boston Globe
