A golfing holiday in Hawaii for accidental wizard John B. Stewart and his sceptical best mate Wilko - what could possibly go wrong? Plenty, when a mysterious killer stalks the Big Island, and a human sacrifice could really have earth-shaking consequences!
Birdies and bogeys. Ghosts. Explosions. Maybe even romance in the air. But is John B.'s dubious magic enough to stop a volcano from destroying the island, and everyone on it?
THE WARRIORS OF WIWO'OLE
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.
