Six Impossible Things
As I was reading Black Swan Rising last week, a book that includes both vampires and fairies, I thought about how the combination reminded me of the Stookie Stackhouse books. It seems like an odd combination, but both books come up with a different way to have the different supernaturals interact. Certainly, having more than one type of supernatural creature in a story presents possibilities for more conflict and different types of magic. But does it ask too much of the reader to throw several supernaturals from different myths into the same story? What factors make it work, and when doesn't it?
