And For Our Next Trick....

"Wu Yong placed two fingers together and calmly spoke a few words. And as a result, in East Bank righteous men became bold robbers, in Stone Village fishing boats became vessels of war. Truly their commander could speak of all things in heaven and on earth, and turn up the rivers and roil the seas. What did Wu Yong the Wizard recommend? Read our next chapter if you would know."

[Shi Nai'an and Luo Guanzhong, Outlaws Of The Marsh, tr. S. Shapiro]
