- Title "Traveller in Black (revised as The Complete Traveller in
Black)", (C) 1971, British, Magic, Fantasy, revised as The Complete
Traveller in Black
The Traveller has the secret power to grant wishes, but not
necessarily in the way the wisher desires. There are lots of
resulting TFs including two notable inanimate ones:
1) A man wishes to become rich by founding a new religion. The
Traveller obligingly gives him the "gift" of perfect silence and
immobility. The man's friends consider his helpless condition
miraculous and ironically worship him as an all-powerful god, and
bring him wealth which he can't spend.
2) A man wishes he could learn the secrets of a magical tree.
Thanks to the Traveller he does so - but he can't use them because
he's become part of the tree itself.
