Since it’s promo weekend for Luck for Hire, I thought I’d share some of the music behind the Aleister Luck books.
Aleister’s particular way of influencing the universe is reliant on his not observing his surroundings too closely. As it says on the cover, “MAGIC is the manipulation of what isn’t or can’t be OBSERVED.” While Aliester doesn’t go around with his eyes shut, blind alleys and closed doors always better serve his purposes. He also relies on his trusty MP3 player to keep from hearing too much.
The first seven songs on this playlist are directly from Luck for Hire. Obviously, I was having a bit of fun with the loose theme. I’m currently working on the second Luck book. It’s probably going to be set entirely in Las Vegas; the other album that gets a lot of play while writing Aleister Luck escapades is the Ocean’s Eleven soundtrack. The last two tracks are more specific to In Need of Luck. Could I resist adding a female magician to this book? Of course not. Bennylita Wati should definitely add some excitement to Aleister’s playlists.
