The Song of the Quarkbeast - Jasper Fforde

Jennifer Strange is managing an agency for hiring out magic. 

 

Not big magic. Just regular magic to do everyday things. 

 

Like flying carpet. After law has banned carpet to carry passenger other than the magician personal user, it is now a pizza delivery service. 

 

In order to have magic to work, other new technology has to be switched off. Reminds me of flying on a plane. 

 

Interesting premise. Not sure where this is going yet. 

 

Reading this for In the Dark Dark Woods square.
