Chapter six of Magician’s Misfortune

Amelia may be the descendant of Marie Laveau, but sometimes that's just not good enough

Amelia may be the descendant of Marie Laveau, but sometimes that’s just not good enough

Harry Eberhardt’s boss, magician Amelia Laveau, has just had her skull bashed in by a lamp wielded by a demon-possessed murderer. And she’s one of the best demon killers in the country. Harry’s seductive visions of success are about to suffer a severe blow. It appears that the Office of Occult Affairs is going to have to put out a sign reading “Needed: better magicians,” in chapter 6 of Magician’s Misfortune, my weekly serial about the nation’s magicians confronting a serial killer demon.

    is that a turban upon her head? Or has she just washed her hair? Though I reckon artistically it’s there to balance her generous frontage. Ah, those wonderful corsets!

      Marie is a nebulous figure in New Orleans history, more legend than fact, though she seems to have really existed, at least. Since she was a Creole of mixed race, other possibilities are that it could be modesty, or it could be covering up the evidence of her ancestry when she moved in polite society.
