“Rough Magic”

Short Story in Double Trouble: An Anthology
of Two-Fisted Team-Ups

Edited by Jonathan Maberry and Keith R.A. DeCandido

Don Quixote de La Mancha, a noble but clearly delusional hidalgo-turned-knight-errant, and his faithful squire, Sancho Panza, from the Spanish epic novel Don Quixote by Miguel De Cervantes, are drawn most unwillingly into a fateful encounter with Prospero, the deposed and exiled Duke of Milan and self-taught sorcerer, and his demonic servant Ariel, from William Shakespeare’s play The Tempest.
