...a college freshman, a mysterious study app, and a demanding college professor combine for confusion rather than cohesion. There are interesting premises all around, but they’re not always executed well.

Synopsis

20 stories of magic and technology

Almost everyone carries a smartphone these days. They sit in pockets and on tables. They sleep on headboards and are the first things their owners check in the morning. They’ve edged out more mundane equipment like calendars and MP3 players.

They aren’t magical, of course. Or are they?

In Untethered: A Magic iPhone Anthology, 21 authors twist reality and call into question the mundanity we hold in our hands. They ask the question, “Is that smartphone completely explainable by science?” and they decide the answer is a resounding “No!”

From award-winners and bold new voices, from experienced fantasists and professional technologists, these stories are fun, clever, and often positive about the power of technology.

...and many more.

At the intersection of fantasy and technology, iPhones could go either way.

Magic knows your number, and it’s calling you.
