Simon Haynes is the british-born, australian author of the Hal Spacejock, Harriet Walsh, Robot vs Dragons and Hal Junior series, as well as a number of short stories. His work typically features an underdog fighting for survival against far stronger opponents.
Simon is a huge fan of Isaac Asimov's work, in particular the robot novels and the Foundation series. He also enjoys dry, witty comedy, and loves satire.
So, imagine Thonn's surprise when he spies Eddie de Elder attempting Magick spells on the sly!
Of course, Magick can't be handled by just anyone, but Thonn is a simple farm boy, and as we all know, they're the ones with the hidden talents ...
A humorous fantasy story featuring forbidden magic.

Except a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon—both of whom have lived amongst Earth's mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle—are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture.
And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist . . .
