The Weight Of The Wish

This was an enormously enjoyable romp to write: naughty genies and a whiff of Harry Potter in the school set-up. Several people have told me I should pursue this character into other adventures, which is something I'll have to think about for the future.

Bards & Sages quarterly magazine took up The Weight Of The Wish in November and it will be published in the summer of 2010.
These student genies were all less than 100 years old and didn't understand the cold realities of being a real genie, of spending half a century inside a sodden rum bottle in a flooded cave.  The stench of rum was still on Yushi, he was sure of it.  He was even seeing a healer about the dreams he was having.  The cave. Always the cave.
