The Plastic Magician

Charlie N. Holmberg is the fourth in the Paper Magician series.  If you’ve not read any, well shame on you, but in case, these are set in England more or less and the stories center around magician apprentices who are bonded to certain materials.  In this novel we meet Alvie Brechenmacher who was fortunate to get her first choice in materials, plastic.

“Alvie admired the mark of her achievement a little longer before removing the hat and untying the knots of the apron, which she reverently folded and set at the foot of her bed. A Polymaker. Her. It was really happening, wasn’t it?”
