|Plot Summary of The Man Who Was Magic|
|"It is a CRIME that this wonderful, magical book is long out of print and VERY hard to find. A young man makes his way with his talking dog to the city of magicians, where he hopes to learn the tricks of the trade and join the magicians guild. Unfortunately, it gradually becomes apparent that while he indeed has the magic touch, the magicians are all merely prestidigitators, tricksters, and illusionists. Their suspicious and increasingly fearful response to the appearance of a true magician in their midst leads to the crisis of the tale."
David Loftus, Resident Scholar
