Overview

The Accidental Magician by David Grace

Long forgotten by mankind the world "Fane" lies on the outer reaches of explored space. The planet’s peculiar electromagnetic fields slowly destroy electronic devices but in compensation they enhance psychic abilities. Over the centuries humans and the aliens with whom they share the planet have evolved into clans of wizards and masters, dullards and incompetents.

Grantin, the nephew of a powerful but harsh magician, seems bound for failure in the magical arts. In a last ditch effort to salvage something of his family’s honor, his uncle gives Grantin an important but simple task, which Grantin manages to screw up in a most dangerous way. Only vast good luck or the appearance of some heretofore hidden magical talents are likely to save him.

Luckily for him, Grantin is, unknowingly, on his way to becoming The Accidental Magician.

About the Author

My first published novel was "The Chocolate Spy" followed by "Fane" then "My Real Name Is Lisa" then "The Eyes Of The Blind." I have re-titled Fane as "The Accidental Magician"; re-titled "My Real Name Is Lisa" as "Stolen Angel" and re-titled "The Eyes Of The Blind" as "True Faith." All are available at Smashwords, Amazon, and other ebook sellers. All of my novels except "Daniel" are available in trade paperback editions at Amazon.com from publisher, Wildside Press. My favorite books that I wrote are "The Concrete Kiss", "Death Never Sleeps", "Death Never Lies", "Shooting Crows At Dawn", "A Death In Beverly Hills", "True Faith", "Easy Target", and "Doll's Eyes" more or less in that order but the order changes from day to day. I think the best SF stories that I have written are the Tramp stories contained in SF Stories Volume 1. I have had several Sci Fi stories published in Analog Magazine and two crime stores published in Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine. I am a long-time member of the Science Fiction Writers of America. The legendary SF author (and friend) Jack Vance named a planet after me in "The Face" and named a lawgiver after me in "Night Lamp." I shared a story credit (with two others) for the Outer Limits episode "Joy Ride" which starred Cliff Robertson. My most recent novel is "Death Never Sleeps." I often write screenplays based on my books as well as stand-alone screenplays. I have written screenplays for: "The Concrete Kiss"; "True Faith"; "Death Never Sleeps", "Stolen Angel"; "A Death In Beverly Hills", "Doll's Eyes","The Traitor's Mistress", "Daniel" and "Etched In Bone." I have also written the non-novel related screenplays: "Dreamboat" romantic comedy; "Champion's Season" (comedy); "First Starship" (G-rated adventure).
