Another reader is looking for the name of a story that eludes him. Here is the description:
Sometime in the late 80’s I believe, I read a “young adult” fantasy/sci-fi book. The setting was sort of “fantasy” with “wizards” possessing magical items. As the story progressed, clues were dropped and by the end, you realized that this was not a fantasy world, it was really far in the future (presumably after some apocalyptic event) and humanity was sort of reset to a medieval stage. These wizards were just ordinary people, and these “magic” items were really mechanical artifacts from today’s era – I remember one simply being a pair of scissors. I realize this premise is not so groundbreaking, but it blew my little 13 or 14 year old mind. I think it about every now and then, but the title and author are long forgotten. Any suggestions?– Dan Schmidt
How about it readers…can you name this story?
