Norman Taylor is a professor at prestigious college who gives classes on what appears to be philosophy and critical thinking. His opening class is about the fallacy of superstition and his premise that superstition derives its power from belief; if you do not believe then the superstition has no power over you. He is young, popular, and is quickly moving up the ranks in the college, bucking for a promotion to a seat as head of his department. He and his wife, Tansy, are new to the area, but engage in all the right social functions with the other professors and administrators of the college.

However, when Norman discovers his wife's secret hobby, he hits the roof, insisting she burn all her protective trinkets and magical wares. Immediately, they fall under assault from the forces that oppose them, and Norman quickly must come to terms with his disbelief and discover who is behind these attacks.
|He's beginning to re-think this whole "skeptic" thing.|
