Other London Volume 1
Welcome to the Other London
Fifty years ago, the sky tore open.
Don't worry, it's not as bad as it sounds.
Ever since Earth joined the Grand Narrative, a collective of alternate worlds with different types of humans and levels of technology, magic has been a part of life. However, while it's common enough, magical problems sometimes take an expert (or two) to resolve. Enter the Fixers, licensed magicians whose job is to help people with their arcane tech support.
Ella Masterson is a high school freshman living in London. (London, Ontario. Not England. The other London.) She's grown up idolizing magical girl anime and developed a talent for her own magic. When she gets a job working for the town Fixer, adventures abound. Chasing an invisible, talking cat through downtown? Facing off against a water nymph drowning people in the Thames River? All in a day's work!
But there's a bigger problem in southern Ontario than rogue fairies, and Ella might be caught right in the middle of it...
Other London Volume 2
Legends of Blades and Stories of Each Other
There aren't a lot of magic users in Canada, but sometimes, magic problems need fixing. That's when you call the Fixing Bureau.
Ella Masterson, now fifteen-year-old apprentice to the Fixer of London and Middlesex County, is as special as they come: immune to the mind-altering effects of the dangerous Gemini Artifacts currently scattered across Ontario. Now, however, she has an even more important task: learning to summon a wand!
But it's not as easy as it sounds, and Zach's weird double Ary is still searching for the remaining artifacts. When an attempt to stop him ends up in a double case of body swapping, Ella suddenly has a lot more problems to deal with and a lot less help to do so.
Crystal hands, a stage actor turned into a squirrel, and an attack by the spirit of William Shakespeare? All in a day's work in the other London!
