The world’s biggest country, in a magazine. Since 1956.
by Kim Wilkins
Wilkins covers a broader geographic
terrain than Sedia, but taps
into the same theme of a hidden, yet
very powerful, world. A golden bear
draws an unwitting researcher into
the mysterious, thousand-year-old
divide between our world (the Mir)
and that of the story (Skazka). His
rescue by his girlfriend requires her
to confront her own magical past –
with magic, there is always a cost.
