"Warlock at the Wheel"
is a short story by Diana Wynne Jones.
story set after Charmed Life
, when most of the magic users lost their power. The Willing Warlock
is unable to cope with his loss of magic and robs a bank. Using his proceeds he pays a French wizard to send him to another world where he will have his powers back again.
Unfortunately, he is out of his depth in this new world, he is on the run from the police in a stolen car when he discovers that there is a small child in the back with a rather large dog.
This story is priceless. How the Willing Warlock is turned into a miserable shade of himself by [Jemima Jane]? and Towser? is something that you won't want to miss.
It is in two short story collections: Warlock At The Wheel: And Other Stories and Mixed Magics.
