Saul didn't have so many friends that he would give one up without a fight. So when Matt disappeared, Saul started a search that led through Matt's kitchen window -- straight into a world of magic and desperate danger! Saul discovered that in this world, his love of verse made him a wizard. But his newfound magic earned him a dreadful foe: Queen Suettay, a false monarch without peer for wickedness and corruption. A fearsome sorceress herself, with armies steeped in evil ready to obey her every sinful command, she determined to break Saul's growing power -- or win his soul for Satan. Fortunately, Saul earned some stalwart friends, as well: Gruesome the troll and young Squire Gilbert; Saul's own guardian angel, and the beautiful -- if unsubstantial -- Angelique. But he'd need the help of the mysterious Spider King to spin a web strong enough to trap this tyrant!

One day the Little Witch, Dorrie, who had a bad habit of meddling with her mother's magic, decided she would be good all day. But, as luck would have it, that was the very day Aunt Agra chose to come to visit. And though Dorrie tried and tried, she just couldn't please Aunt Agra with anything. "Look at her!" Aunt Agra said. "She hasn't touched her sandwich. She hasn't drunk her milk. And look at her face! She's been into your magic again. She's turning green!" But this time Dorrie hadn't meddled with the Big Witch's magic at all. This time Dorrie really felt sick. It was odd, though -- for the minute the genial old Witch Doctor arrived, she began to feel better. And after taking only two of the chocolate peppermints which he prescribed, Dorrie was almost entirely over her bad case of Auntitis. But most astonishing of all was the way the Witch Doctor cured Aunt Agra!

"Well, now we are getting somewhere," says Sula, glancing him up and down, appearing victorious. "But she was not a witch like me, else she would not have done what she did. For that is exactly what happened, isn't it? Jadis became infected by M24 and slew her own son, and your son too. And then you spent the next year and a half wandering a world you no longer recognized, a world where the dead were stacked on every street corner and the bonfires burned day and night, until you stumbled into a beer hall one night because they were offering free bread and heard a powerful orator talking about male superiority and cleansing the world; and you listened, at first just because it felt good to have something in your stomach, but later because you were swayed, and that orator's name was Kill-sin, who would go on to found New Salem and rule it with an iron fist. Am I warm, Witch Doctor?"

Aluka  A Tale of the Witch Doctors

What is all this about?" She stops pacing suddenly, her face a riot of emotions, as though she is experiencing some kind of epiphany. "But, don't you see?" She gestures at the tanks and jars. "You're what all this is about.

A Prequel story to the Witch Doctor series ...She looks at me incredulously, disbelievingly, then, suddenly, rushes to within several feet of me, where she pauses. "You're ... But-your voice, your eyes. How could a woman have clear-" I only shake my head.Slowly, it dawns on her, spilling across her face like the sun, illuminating her eyes. "Oh, my God." She sways as though she might fall upon the floor; then, recovering, begins pacing back and forth. "I mean, what are the odds ...""You begin to see my interest," I say, even as my finger tightens against the trigger. "Now-again. Your life for information. What is all this about?" She stops pacing suddenly, her face a riot of emotions, as though she is experiencing some kind of epiphany. "But, don't you see?" She gestures at the tanks and jars. "You're what all this is about. Facial reconstruction, breast reduction, eye normalization-all attempts to place spies amongst your ranks; to infiltrate you, as you have infiltrated us."She steps to within a few feet of me. "The Power-do you have it? How about identity? Orientation? Do they know-the men, that is-do they accept it?"I hesitate, questioning my own motives. At last I say, "No, they do not-know, that is. I came to them before puberty. As for acceptance, they accept that I am a man with androgen insensitivity syndrome; a man who's face resembles a woman's. That is all. As for having the Power ... my eyes have begun to change, at night, but clearing as the day goes on-if that's what you mean. Now ... please. Details."She looks at me as though having achieved a minor victory. "That's how you found me, by accessing the hive mind, though you wouldn't have been aware of it. So, you've stayed among them and killed for them in order to survive, but now all that's changing. Isn't it?"I don't say anything, only continue to stare at her."And it is changing-make no mistake. That's how M24 progresses. Your eyes will remain white longer with each passing day-until the transformation is at last complete." She scans my face as though attempting to read my thoughts. "Tell me, Witch Doctor. What will you do when that day arrives?"
