Flashlight - There was no way Kevin Nygaard could have known that the innocuous app he downloaded to his phone would transform his life. (To be clear, this story was written well before the iPhone had a built in flashlight app.)
Oceans of Troy - Card tricks and illusions were enough for Justin Regal until Troy Issca came back from the Navy and showed him true magic.
Whispers - Ben Vickerts acquires a mysterious power that very nearly overwhelms him before it delivers his heart’s desire.
