1 Work in The Laws of Magic - Michael Pryor
"Rational? What's rational about magic? Trumped-up, self-important poseurs making things happen that have no right to happen. Dangerous stuff." (Word of Honour, p 235)
Aspiring magician Pompey Craddock attends university and meets an eternally-suspicious young man called Tallis. This is the story of how they met, how they fell in love, and how they - eventually - worked things out.
