Anthology Review: Tales of Wonder
Kaana herself is a post-human species, but many of the other villagers are from alien races, although some resemble Terran animals, so its possible they could have been evolved eons ago by humans.

In both stories its established that magic can cause advanced tech to stop working and, when you have a sufficiently advanced society, I could see how magic could become harder to hide when one spell can act as a giant EMP.
