Where Magic Rules is on the copyeditor's desk

My fantasy novelette (it's 25,000 words as of now) is being copyedited! Where Magic Rules is a departure for me, a pure fantasy set in another version of earth. The hero is from our world, but he finds himself trapped in an alternate reality where there are mages and dragons and magic rules science.

The hero is named Joe and the heroine is named Phillip. It's an interesting situation. Joe is certainly surprised by it.But while Joe is an outsider, Phillip is very much a product of her own world. Equal parts of buddy movie, road movie, and romantic comedy combine as the two of them go on a quest in the service of the Great Mage, a quest that leads them to a dragon's lair.
