Overview

This short story is about what might happen if magic really worked on an industrial scale. And it isn't pretty...
The story features a married couple: the husband is a scientist while his wife believes in all sorts of magical stuff.
Lots of people believe in magic, but I couldn't help thinking that if there was really anything in it, big industry and the military would be keenly interested in it for doing Big Stuff. As I said then, if Ford Motor Co could just 'magic' cars into existence, it would save them the trouble and expense of building a car factory and hiring workers.
We have since learned that some decades ago the US military was inquiring into ESP for possible use in military intelligence. However it seems it didn't come to anything.
This short story was previously published in the small - press fiction magazine ORION. Rights reverted to the author.

Meh couldnt get through this story. It was short but the storyline was not strong enough.
