When thirteen-year-old Mindy finds a fishing float on the beach in Mumbai, India, she doesn't suspect the danger and adventure that will come along with it. She soon discovers that it is no ordinary fishing float, but a magic crystal ball, and that she has been chosen to save the world from destruction and chaos. Agamede, the magical being who takes the form of the ball in her dormant state, needs Mindy's help to stop an evil sorceress named Roxanne Evillovich. Roxie's diabolical plan is to use Agamede's powers to eradicate modern technology from the world and return civilization to the days when magic ruled, so she can enjoy her former glory once again. But first, Roxanne must locate her crystal ball, lost to the sea during transport from her castle in France to her new home, the Crystal Tower in Portland, Oregon-and with aid from her sorcerer friend, Rasputin, soon discovers that it has floated halfway around the world. Mindy's older brother, Robert no longer believes in magic, so she must travel alone through time and space on a quest for an ancient spell that will allow her to use Agamede's powers against Roxie. Mindy finds help along the way as she journeys through thirteenth-century Spain, the mystical Isle of Avalon, and ancient Egypt. Only time will tell if Mindy can retrieve the spell from the past before Roxanne reclaims the crystal ball and uses Agamede's magic to end the world as we know it.

Since the beginning of the nineteenth century folklorists, and the general public in their wake, have assumed the orality of fairy tales. Only lately have more and more specialists been arguing in favor of at least an interdependence between oral and printed distribution of stories. This book takes an extreme position in that debate: as far as Tales of magic is concerned, the initial transmission proceeded exclusively through prints. From a historical perspective, this is the only viable approach; the opposite assumption of a vast unrecorded and thus inaccessible reservoir of oral stories, presents a horror vacui. Only in the course of the nineteenth century, when folklorists started collecting in the field and asked their informants for fairy tales, was this particular genre incorporated into a then feeble oral tradition. Even then story tellers regularly reverted to printed texts. Every recorded fairy tale can be shown to be dependent on previous publications, or to be a new composition, constructed on the basis of fragments of stories already in existence. Tales of Magic, Tales in Print traces the textual history of a number of fairy tale clusters, linking the findings of literary historians on the sixteenth to eighteenth centuries to the material collected by nineteenth- and twentieth-century field workers. While it places fairy tales as a genre firmly in a European context, it also follows particular stories in their dispersion over the rest of the world.

This book examines magic's generally maleficent effect on humans from ancient Egypt through the Middle Ages, including tales from classical mythology, Jewish, Christian, and Muslim cultures. It shows that certain magical motifs lived on from age to age, but that it took until the Italian Renaissance for magic tales to become fairy tales.
