releseabeIn Mortyplicity, doubtless eons after the events involving the numerous Decoy Families, Glockenspiel Jerry (I was thinking of them as puppets/marionettes -- not sure why called that) who has been largely dismantled by beavers and probably worn by time, is discovered by what is described as dolphi...

Q: Contemporary Fantasy w/ Magic Heroine and a Good Vampire boyfriend. Post-Buffy. Pre-Twilight

ArcyLooking for a book I read in the early 2000s. I believe it was a standalone novel and new at the time. The cover may have been primarily brown with gold lettering. There's definitely a Buffy feel to it, with our normal-appearing heroine falling for a vampire-with-the-soul. It's not a romance. It ...

Q: Mythology researcher gets pulled into helping Artemis in the modern world

FuzzyBootsI suspect that I'm just a few keywords away from figuring this one out, but I either listened to an audiobook of this, or read an ebook, in August of 2022 or 2023 because I remember partaking of it during nighttime walks during a family trip to Ocean City. The male lead is a mythology professor a...

Q: Fantasy manga, Not an Isekai (I think), about world of magic and monsters about a little boy who excels at magic

Lovell Padden MaychrzakI am looking for a title about a little boy who was recently born and has an in-depth affinity for mysticism. In the first couple of chapters, we see him emulate the magic of a couple of individuals (his older sister, for one) and simulate it nearly perfectly. In a RAW chapter, he's then seen rep...

Q: Short scary stories anthology book - Swore on a Dead Cat

user2506833I've had the phrase "you swore on a dead cat?" bouncing around in my head for years, and I think I can trace it back to a short scary story anthology book I read in the third grade, around 2010. I think the book was fairly old at the time, so I'm not sure how much information the year I read it p...

Q: Trilogy - Protagonist is a Glitch in VR RPG

FuzzyBootsI know there's a TV Tropes page for the series. Chapters were initially released on Royal Road but have since been published on Kindle (and I think removed from Royal Road). The main character is an NPC in a VR, female, maybe an elf. I think her first name starts with a Q. She is the "hero's comp...
