Taller Tales Exclusive Edition #8: The Clear Cut
Not all literature is produced in archival quality. And stories are not all necessarily “Literature”. Or, in any event, are marketed as such. Nor need they be.
The average wizard on the street might not be a dedicated scholar, but the wizarding world, upon the whole, has a far larger number of publishing houses than its population numbers would suggest. So, we can conclude that most wizards do, at the very least read.
After all, most wizarding households don’t have television. And ambient magic has no degenerative effect upon books.
And, let’s face it, all publishers are very dedicated to giving their market what it wants. And one of the things that their market most wants is stories.
Undercity Press was evidenty very pleased with the reception of their serialized tale of the adventures of “Dr Cyril Ramson” (well that’s the name that he now goes by, anyway) in Boston and Brazil, following his escape from the aftermath of the wizarding war in Britain.
So pleased that, not long after that serial came to its end, they decided to do it again. Follow Dr Ramson on his 2nd adventure, as he uncovers a highly illegal black market potions ring. And encounters a couple of faces from his past.
