At its core, magic is just the ability to change the laws of nature.
Mason Grant's life was going just as he'd always planned. Then a knock at the door changed everything. Normally, he would have considered Professor Anklin's tale of a civilization destroyed because it had learned how to manipulate the laws of nature crazy. Of course, that was before he saw his couch resting on the ceiling.
Travelling to Myscreth with the Professor, Mason discovers a world of contradictions. On a ruined world, the Myscrethian people live much like the early American settlers, yet thanks to the ability to manipulate the laws of science there’s unlimited electrical power and powered flight.
As Mason begins learning to control abilities he never dreamed possible, he discovers that not all is not as it seems. Even as the Myscrethian people try to rebuild their world, there are those who seek to once again unleash the power which led to its destruction. And this time it's not only Myscreth's fate that hangs in the balance, but Earth's as well.

However, time isn't an either or proposition. Things may eventually work out, but not the way anyone expects.
You’ve probably heard that old saying, “time heals all wounds.” That’s supposed to mean that you’ll eventually forget, but what if you can’t. Imagine the hurt of every insult, the pain of every punch, and the anger of every injustice you’ve ever suffered never going away. That’s the curse of a photographic memory.
Oh, but I’ve figured out a way to make them all go away. Make it so they never happened in the first place. It’s taken most of my life, but at last I’ll be free. Time can indeed heal all wounds, you just have to know how to use it.
Francis Trowel had everything he needed to be a private eye: the dingy office, the efficient if not pretty private secretary, a gun (neatly tucked in a drawer), and even a bottle of bourbon (filled with iced tea). The only thing he didn’t have were exciting cases. So when the elderly Mrs. Wentworth entered his office the only thing Francis wondered was what breed of poodle she'd lost. But after a murder, multiple frame ups, and a cop who had it out for him, Francis realized the Wentworth case was anything but routine. Because without a cat or dog in sight, Francis realized his first real case might just end up being his last.

Finally, he'd had enough and made a wish, a terrible wish. When it came true Buttons thought all his troubles were over, but he was about to learn a lesson about unintended consequences.
