FANTASY LIFE by KRISTINE KATHRYN RUSCH
Strange things have always happened in Seavy County, the
most rugged stretch of Oregon's coastline. Violent storms
sprung up only there, while the rest of the state has
sunshine; supernatural sightings are common; and the
throughout the area understand that there is powerful magic
in the world. What most of them don't acknowledge--at least
publicly--is that Seavy County is filled not just with
wildlife, but with fantasy life as well, creatures that
can't be found
anywhere else in the world.
The fantasy life has always been endangered, but it's
protected along this stretch of coastline. The Buckingham
protected it for centuries. In 19?0, Cassie Buckingham lost
her husband in order to protect the fantasy life.
Lyssa Buckingham ran away from Anchor Bay in Seavy County,
so that she wouldn't have to live in the magical Cliffside
House, and spend her life as an eccentric guarding the
waves. But she's heading home in disgrace with her ten-year-
daughter Emily (whom some say killed her father). And as
the forces that gathered in 1970 return for a repeat visit,
will have to make hard choices. About Cliffside House,
about Anchor Bay, and about Emily--and about the fantasy
that surrounds them all.
