Here are two more Gwen Conner stories paired together. One is serious, the other not quite so much:
A Lady Never Knows: A police officer asks Gwen Conner to deliver a ransom to kidnappers. Can magic help Gwen avoid danger when she meets the kidnappers?
First published in “Calliope,” Number 59, March-April 1996.
Gwen Defends A Creek: A small-town mayor hires Gwen for an unusual job. He wants trespassing fishermen kept away from a creek and harming the chances of their new recreation area. Can Gwen and her brother use magic to keep the trespassers away?
