Alodar was a mere journeyman thaumaturge learning the least of the five arts of magic. As such, he had no right to aspire to the hand of the fair lady, Queen Vendora, but aspire he did. Alodar's quest is not only a stirring tale of adventure, but also one of the most logical detailings of the laws of magic ever to appear in fantasy.

While at Caltech, in 1960 he organized and led what has been called the best college prank ever pulled –The Rose Bowl Card Stunt Caper
In 2016, he retired from business endeavors and began a new full time career of writing. Time will tell if he still has any gas left in the tank.
