Sean Wyndham begins his second summer of magical training with mentor Joseph Kokokoho, who guards the mysteries of long-deserted Dunwich. Mountains crowned with stone circles and dubious altars, whippoorwill-haunted glens that lead to transdimensional rifts, what could be cooler? A new familiar, that's what, and a new shot at developing a better control over his own Magic. And, with Eddy and Daniel at nearby Miskatonic University for weekend hang-outs, Sean's expectations for this summer are high. Also at MU is a new magic student, Felicia Peralta, long and lean and impenetrably distant, until she takes a sudden interest in Sean. Nor is Felicia the only one unusually curious about Sean. The undead witch Patience Orne has returned to Arkham, determined to meet her many-times-great-grandson at last - and meeting isn't the only thing on her mind?

ANNE M. PILLSWORTH's short story Geldman's Pharmacy" received honorable mention in The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror, Thirteenth Annual Collection. She currently lives in a Victorian "trolley car" suburb of Providence, Rhode Island. Summoned is her first novel."

"Plans: - Select advertising - Online publicity campaign - Digital promotion across Tor/Forge's major online platforms - Extensive educational marketing campaign inc. galley distribution, conference promotions, book buzz, webinar, & select major trade advertising placements"

? the characters and Sean's relationships with them feel genuine, as does the magic-filled world they inhabit. Pillsworth integrates the contemporary world and the supernatural one seamlessly, describing cars and highways with the same attention to minute details as she does enchanted paintings. A well-executed sequel that expands the mythos, solidifies the characters, and raises the stakes for the next outing. - Kirkus Reviews on Fathomless "Fantastic? A novel for readers who like their magic dangerous, their witches panicked, and their hexes irrecovable." - Sean Beaudoin, author of The Infects and Wise Young Fool, on Summoned
