Published November 1997 by Ace; also available in trade paperback and mass market editions

The Night Watch

It is now 2074. Magic has been in the world for as long as anyone can remember — and has taken over. Children are sacrificed to gods and ghosts. Man-made machines have conquered the inner cities. And people who enter the forests are never seen again…

“In this beautifully written novel, magic supersedes technology, making North America savagely interesting…Stewart has a tremendous talent for illuminating the interior lives of his characters…A surprisingly warm book, glowing with life and imagination.”—Publisher’s Weekly

“The Night Watch is a strong and evocative study of character, an intensely perceptive study of cultural conflict and art, and a powerful narrative that crosses the borders between the living and the dead, the natural and the supernatural.”—The Edmonton Journal
