What happens between book 9 of the Young Wizards series, A Wizard of Mars, and book 10, Games Wizards Play? This volume features 150,000 words of canonical fiction from Diane Duane that make up a "transitional trilogy" between books 9 and 10. Including:
The novella Not On My Patch, the tale of an unusual Halloween in the Young Wizards' neighborhood, featuring overage Trick Or Treating, suburban zombies, and the Attack of the Killer Pumpkins.
The novelette How Lovely Are Thy Branches, a holiday-themed Young Wizards story in which an alien wizard who looks a lot like a Christmas tree gets the gift he wants most, during a memorable party and sleepover only slightly disrupted by a superblizzard and an incursion of otherworldly ghosts.
And finally, the original Young Wizards novel Lifeboats: the tale of a distant world threatened by unavoidable doom, an intervention that takes thousands of Earth's wizards, young and old, into harm's way, and a Valentine's Day that absolutely doesn't go as planned...
