Clark, Douglas W

(?   -    ) US writer whose Alchemy sequence of humorous fantasy novels – Alchemy Unlimited (1990), Rehearsal for a Renaissance (1992) and Whirlwind Academy (1993) – spoofs without challenging the kind of fantasy tale concerning clumsy Sorcerers' Apprentices and the minutiae of how they eventually learn to do good Magic. In this case, the Land-of-Fable France in which the inept apprentice operates is pestered by bottled Demons exported from Spain by the Inquisition. [JC]
