J Scott Savage is the author of middle grade books. His series include:


Other people may see thirteen-year-old Marcus Kanenas as an outcast and a nobody, but he sees himself as a survivor and a dreamer. In fact, his favorite dream is of a world far away, a world where magic is as common as air, where animals tell jokes, and where trees beg people to pick their fruit. He even has a name for this place-Farworld.

When Marcus magically travels to Farworld, he meets Kyja, a girl without magic in a world where spells, charms, and potions are everywhere, and Master Therapass, a master wizard who has kept a secret hidden for thirteen years, a secret that could change the fate of two worlds.

But the Dark Circle has learned of Master Therapass's secret and their evil influence and power are growing. Farworld's only hope is for Marcus and Kyja to find the mythical Elements-water, land, air, and fire-and convince them to open a drift between the worlds.

Case File 13:

The very fact that you hold this volume in your hands—that you dared open the pages of what could prove to be a rather frightening tale—tells me something about you. You are the kind of person who walks past graveyards, late at night, hoping for a glimpse of something gliding secretively among the headstones. While others lie awake in the darkness, terrified of unearthly beings oozing up from under their beds or slinking out of their closets, you dream of finding just such a creature. Capturing it. Perhaps taming it, as much as such a thing can be tamed, and making it your pet.

You are a lover of all things strange and frightening. Instead of running from what goes bump in the wee hours of the night, you search for it.

You remind me of three boys.

Their case, file number 13, is so incredible, so shocking, you may not believe it.

But then, it might be better if you don’t believe it. You’re probably safer that way.
