Summary

‘What will you do when the magic is gone?’ 
Sander Bree is a royal mage. Steeped in privilege, he lives a cushy life advising the king on matters of court and politics, yet still complains that he's stuck in a rut. 
Rosheen Katell is a freelance mage and, with Anzu her griffin, she’s worked hard to build a reputation as a trustworthy truth seer. She never lies, never kills.  
The source of their power is the Lapis Moon in orbit above. Very soon, that magic will be gone, changing their lives and their world forever. Sander must keep a promise that would have been difficult enough with magic, but is a suicide mission without it. Rosheen is forced to side with a murderous warlord, and her once-solid principles are tested and found wanting. Both will be set against one another in a war unlike anything the world has seen before, in this sweeping fantasy of magic’s ending.

    Conversations with Steve Jobs

    I asked Steve what he would want to be remembered for in one hundred years and it wasn’t what you may expect. The answer is like a time traveler from the future talking of the distant past in a very eclectic way. Steve said, “I want to be remembered for placing a tool in the hands of people and giving them the power to access all the information in the world and make a future how they want it. This is my legacy.”
    
    The first evolution of technology was by Johannes Gutenberg who produced the first printing press with moveable type, placing previously hand written books owned by a relatively few into the hands of many. It was the first era of mass communication and changed education thus changing humanity forever.
    
    Fast forward to 2007 and Apple releases the first iPhone followed by the iPad in 2011. Steve’s vision placed them into the hands of people who were now able to comfortably reach all information.
    
    Apple was the second era of mass communication and it also changed the world forever. It not only placed all the world’s information at a
    fingers reach but it gave people the ability to change their future and affect the world in any way they chose.
    
    Steve did not conceive the iPhone and iPad with a mandate of how to use them. He simply placed the tool into your world at the gentle stroke of a finger. It is a precious gift from a Hippie of love and enlightenment to the rest of the world.
    In one hundred or one thousand years, will we remember Steve Jobs for the iPhone and iPad? Possibly not. However he will be remembered for the concept of convenient and easy access to information and being the second epoch of communication placed in the hands of ordinary people.
    
    The personality cult around Steve Jobs would be lost in the past and his minor failings as a man forgotten as we access unlimited knowledge in a future world. It is humanities choice where they go to from here.
    
    So let us listen as Sussan allows Steve to speak through her from beyond as we ask questions that a generation would want to ask. Where did the source of the visionary come from? How did he actually conceive the idea for iPhone and iPad technology? There was also the bizarre estrangement from his girlfriend Chrisann Brennan and reconnection with daughter Lisa. Also Steve’s commitment to Zen Buddhism and how it impacted on his life and the Apple Corporation.
    
    He was at times a tyrant, a pacifist and Zen Buddhist who believed passionately in meditation. So how do all these contradictions fit into the man who once ran one of the most powerful digital technology companies in the world?
    
    He also leaves us with a future prediction for technology. A device which stares at us in the face so simplistic in its presence that it may have been overlooked. But its simple design underlies complex technology that could become the biggest income earner in the history of Apple.
    
    Well simply, let’s ask Steve.
