Golgotham

Golgotham — (2010-2013) Publisher: Like most Manhattanites, aspiring artist Tate can’t resist a good rental deal — even if it’s in the city’s strangest neighborhood, Golgotham, where for centuries werewolves, centaurs, and countless other creatures have roamed the streets. Her new landlord is a sorcerer name Hexe, who is determined to build his reputation without using dark, left-hand magic. As Tate is drawn into Hexe’s fascinating world, they both find that the right hand does not always know what the left hand is doing — and avoiding darkness is no easy trick…

Right Hand Magic by Nancy A. Collins

Tate, a young New York artist, needs a new apartment right away. She makes metal sculptures out of car parts and other odds and ends, and it seems her landlord isn’t too happy with the noise level. Tate discovers an available room at a reasonable price and jumps at the chance, even though the building is in Golgotham, New York’s magical neighborhood.

In Left Hand Magic, Nancy A. Collins delivers a satisfying follow-up to last year’s Right Hand Magic. Tate Eresby, a trust-fund baby turned avant-garde sculptor, is still living in the rich setting of Golgotham with her Kymeran lover, Hexe. But new troubles are brewing in Golgotham. A magazine spread has made Golgotham a hip hot spot for human tourists, and racial tensions are growing between these tourists and Golgotham’s magical natives.

The racism that Collins depicts is, sadly, all too realistic and plausible. It threatens to tear apart the relationship between Tate and Hexe, as both are seen as race traitors. But it’s far worse than that too: bullying, then rioting, then murder take their toll on the neighborhood. Some of the victims are characters we’ve already met and l... Read More
