Thank you kindly and a happy St. George's Day to yourself.


The story of St. George and the Dragon perhaps started with a fellow saving a young girl from a Crocodile on the banks the river Nile. A long fisherman’s tale you might say. The Crocodile becomes a Dragon, the girl becomes Princess and the fellow becomes a Saint by way of exaggeration of a simple truth over time. It is a lesson in how to create magical illusions - distortions of the truth.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Ransom Stoddard: You're not going to use the story, Mr. Scott?

Maxwell Scott: No, sir. This is the West, sir. When the legend becomes fact, print the legend.
