About

Black Hat Magick is a serial webfiction occult magick and cyberpunk story set in Tempe, AZ at Arizona State University. It features the strange happenings that occur all around campus–unbeknownst to many of the students–a socially challenged but brilliant computer geek named Elaine, a ex-cheerleader now Chemical Engineering major named Frog, and an android named Hadaly. The Black Hat Magick Detective Agency–Elaine’s brainchild–acts as both a source for technical computer help and a supernatural clearinghouse for even the weirdest problems that ASU students might run into.
