Here’s your first look at the cover of Mike Resnick’s The Hex Is In: The Fast Life and Fantastic Times of Harry the Book.
From boxing matches to dragon races to elections, there’s no wager Harry won’t cover—so long as the odds are right.
Harry the Book operates out of a Manhattan bar booth, with his personal wizard and his zombie bodyguard close at hand. He’ll dope out the odds on any sort of contest, even if that gets him into a heap of trouble.
Be it conniving gamblers, lovelorn wizards, or flea-bitten werewolves, when it comes to the misadventures of Harry and his crew one thing is certain: the hex is always in.
This book contains fifteen tales of Harry the Book—the complete set of Resnick’s beloved Damon Runyon-inspired urban fantasy yarns, including one brand-new story and several never before published in the United States.
