MAGIC, INC.: It starts as an 'agency' for magicians, complete with fully guaranteed services and bargain rates. It squeezes out the small independent magicians, and expands its sphere of influence to a stranglehold on Congress.
Then an Oxford-educated Congo tribesman, a little old lady who dabbles in black magic, and two magic-consuming businessmen decide to tackle Hell's Establishment . . .

WALDO: (who gives his name to the remote-controlled manipulators used in the space program and elsewhere. . .)
Waldo regarded the whole human race as his servants---and they were!
Fat, ugly, and hopelessly crippled on Earth, Waldo F. Jones floated like a seraph in the only place in the universe where he was truly free . . . his incredible zero-gravity home mockingly called 'Wheelchair' by those who hated him.
Born the victim of a strange muscular atrophy, Waldo now influenced nearly the entire planet. For, like it or not, those hairless apes down there on the ground desperately needed him and his preterhuman genus they couldn't begin to understand.
Waldo was willing to help, though, as long as they met his price!
