Why does an octopus have a genie’s bottle? Why murder a honey badger?
And how does a drunk pangolin almost collapse a regional economy?
The Magician will find out.
Told through imaginative folktales, and a tongue in cheek narrative, THE MAGICIAN is a fun read that follows the titular character on misadventures through the savannas, jungles, and cities of his unique fantasy world.
Alex Guissé is full of stories – stories inspired by a lifelong love of mythology and folktales from all over the world, mixed with surreal yet true adventures gained from 15 years living and working in developing countries.
When he’s not writing fiction, he’s either managing a multimillion dollar environmental portfolio, or spending quality time with his wife and twin sons in Dakar, Senegal.
He has also survived being chased by a feral pig, killer whale, and a crested crane with a taste for french fries – fortunately these were all on separate occasions.
