21st Century Maine still has a lot of old world charm. But some echoes of the past are anything but benign. Monsters on land and at sea. A band of unlikely but ruthless pirates. A storm at sea and the real prospect of a watery grave.
In their search for family history and family treasure, John B. Stewart and his beloved Elizabeth, together with old friends and new, find much more than they'd expected. Perhaps more than even the wizard's strange power of dubious magic can contend with.
THE TREASURE OF TEPATAMWA
The Dubious Magic series chronicles the adventures of John B. Stewart. Seemingly a fairly average Public Servant in Australia's capital, he runs his head into a poker machine in a moment of Scotch-fuelled silliness. The impact wakes a strange power apparently lying dormant in him - his spoken wishes start coming true, often in ways that resemble unlikely coincidences.
It doesn't entirely make his life easier, although he does get to leave his unappealing job and travel the world. With the power comes unexpected responsibilities as he encounters sorcerers, demons, mad scientists and others with strange abilities and dark ambitions. The truth, of who and what John B. Stewart really is, lies in antiquity, and finding it may be a perilous journey for the unlikely wizard and those he loves.
