Pick a card, any card...
On a trip to visit his ailing grandfather, seventeen-year-old Peter meets a magician who claims to know how to grant Peter’s dearest wish: to perform impossible illusions.
But dearest wishes come with costs, and new opportunities come with each turn of the cards in a hospital room at the edge of nowhere.
The sixth tale in The Lombard Alchemist Tales. Creepy, dark, and filled with macabre laughs and doses of unexpected wonder, these stories are for all of you who loved The Twilight Zone, Tales from the Crypt, or the short fiction of Ray Bradbury.
