When Mr Tipkins, a gift-giver from the Department of Wishes of Faerie, arrives to give a wish to a newborn baby in the village of Widdershins, he isn't in the best of moods. His uncharacteristic burst of bad temper begins a chain reaction that has consequences no one can foresee. The Truth about Magic is a story of mistakes and of deception, of wizards (good and bad), and of what happens when perfectly ordinary wishes go wrong.

Luckett writes in many genres, but his first loves are fantasy and science fiction. He has won many accolades for his work, including three Aurealis Awards.From AudioFile:
The battle lines are drawn in a war of class and magical powers. Stanley McGeagh's presentation of the hard-working Mr. Tipkins--a common wood elf with an amazing knack for magic--is outdone only by his smarmy performance of Rathalorn of the Silverwood High Elves. Rathalorn, an uncommonly untalented high-born elf, would rather purloin magic than work for a living. When two human children enter as Tipkin's students and allies, they manage to save the day with their small gifts and quick thinking. McGeagh's accent may stump young or less patient listeners, but most will be avidly waiting for the next entry in the School of Magic series.
