Book Description

Aug. 5 2008
Seventeen original stories about a mall where anything you can imagine is for sale-but who will pay the price?

The stores in Enchantment Place live up to the title, catering to a rather unique clientele ranging from vampires and werecreatures to wizards and witches, elves and unicorns-in short, anyone with shopping needs not likely to be met in the chain stores. Here are seventeen shopping trips you'll never forget, from a store that sells the highest quality familiars...to the non-magical daughter of a magic-filled family who is left to mind the family jewelry store though she has no means to defeat an enchanting thief...to a woman running a Wiccan supply store who is suddenly faced with an IRS audit...

5.0 out of 5 stars whimsical fun Aug. 7 2008
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The in spot for shopping in Chicago is ENCHANTMENT PLACE, a mall opened 24 hours 364 days a year. This is the place where the vampires, shapeshifters, and other paranormal go shopping. The only day the mall closes is for that most sacred of holidays, Halloween. With that Introduction and whimsical kudos to her sister who's let them have a mall comment which led to this anthology, Denise Little brings out the ship 'til you drop supernatural crowd.

In spite of the cutesy gimmick, the authors are a who's who of fantasy to include Sarah Hoyt, Deb Stover, Esther Friesner, Laura Resnick and Diane Duane; etc. Special acclaim goes to Peter Norwood who aptly titled his well written entry "And into the Fire" as he is the sole male contributor; Ms. Little must have settled on author realism even with an enchanted mall as finding men to admit they chose the mall over football would be too surrealistic. Surprisingly none of the tales are weak as each contains a bit of whimsy as if the writers truly enjoyed doing these tales. Where else could one shop for a familiar, watch the IRS audit a Wiccan supply store owner, observe I'm a unicorn watcher (apologies to the O'Kaysons), and of course trolls arguing over taxes. Readers will be enchanted from start of finish when Carman the untalented offspring of two mages deals with the enchanting "Poop Thief"; that sums up a lighthearted fun collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enchantingly different Jan. 25 2009
By Chrijeff - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Like Little's previous effort, Witch High, this book is better described as a shared world than as a themed anthology; it's obvious that the contributors were presented with certain parameters and expected to stay within them. They imagine here a mall tailored to "vampires, weres, sorcerers, witches, elves, and other fey beings" but also patronized by ordinary mundane humans, staffed by both supernaturals and the powerless, and located in what is apparently an alternate Chicago where everyone (well, almost everyone; Roy Blake, narrator of the opening tale, seems not to have realized that the "unusual" class of customers even existed) accepts the presence of magic and general weirdness. As in any fantasy, their challenge is to make it all seem, not just real, but acceptable to the reader as well, and this they have done, in stories that range from the lighthearted ("Shining On," "Make-a-Mortal," "The Poop Thief") to the thrilling ("Altar Ego," "The Face is Familiar") to the romantic ("Heart's Fire," "Cupid's Crib"), with a generous helping of humor along the way. Little is rapidly joining her fellow DAW anthologist Martin H. Greenberg as one of my favorite editors. I'll be watching for her next collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Laugh out Loud Entertainment Oct. 21 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Most anthologies have a story or two that are duds in compairasion to the rest. Enchantment Place did not...every one of them are quality.

This was my first Anthology by Little but will not be my last. When I am done writing this review back to the Kindle store for more I go.

I would love to see more from the Enchantment Place World and even other Enchantment Place locations. Just think of all the fun that could happen in Florida during Spring Break or London because Diagon Alley shop keepers are not happy about the mall. There are all the catotombs in underground Chicogo for mischief. the recent sink holes in Los Angels to be blambed by under dewlers. Redneck Fey in Texas. Cowboy Fey in Airizona and New Mexico. Enchantment Places inside Disneylands.

I could go on with at least twenty more easily but I will spare you that as I belive I have made my point. I do hope Ms Little will see or hear about this review and carry out more Enchantment Place Stories as I loved them all and want MORE.

I have a retail job, so a collection of fantasy stories in a setting that I can identify with was nice. Speaking of setting, each story has a shared setting. A mall of magical shops in Chicago called Enchantment place.

Usually short stories don't have much chance to build up characters but I enjoy most stories in this book. They are a little tame but definitely worth spending time (and money) reading.
