Dominik Parisien, Navah Wolfe, eds.
Robots vs Fairies.
Saga Press. 2018

Get ready for the ultimate death match between the mechanical and the magical.

Travel with us to distant stars, step sideways into worlds under the hill, journey across ruined landscapes at the end of the world, solve riddles in the Old West, and follow that strange music to the dive bar down the road. The robots and fairies are waiting for you there. They are waiting for you everywhere. And now the time has come to choose a side. Old stories will be upgraded, worlds will collide, science will give way to magic, and magic will become science.

Join eighteen bestselling, award-winning, and up-and-coming authors as they pick a side and take a stand to answer the question on everyone's mind: When the lasers cease firing and the fairy dust settles, who will triumph in the epic battle between the artificial and the (super)natural?
