The Best Magician in the World ? Mystro?

 

 

What the?!

We write weird stuff here at Inside Magic.  The weird articles don?t always start out weird but sometimes we either forget to take our medication, or we take too much, or we are possessed by that lady from the Infomercial talking incessantly about dust particles. 

 

The SF Crowsnest site has consistently good and weird fantasy fiction and essays.  We hadn?t noticed any articles about magicians or dust particles until today.

 

Geoff Willmetts has written a very short story titled The Best Magician in the World.  Logically, we assumed it was about someone we knew.  Perhaps it was a fictional assessment of the Inside Magic 2004 Magician of the Year. 

 

But it was none of that.  It is the story of Mystro and his efforts to prove to some booking agent that he is the best there is. 

 

I have read it now about 15 times and am not sure what it means.  It is a strange little piece; complete with a funny/true reference to dove workers.  Okay, maybe only Dan Sperry ? the Dove Worker?s Dove Worker ? should read it.  He?ll probably laugh but maybe not. 

 

Check it out and check out the other pieces of fiction on the site.  They?re all short in length but deep (or we?re just shallow) in meaning.
