Spontaneous human combustion and the idea that it passes from generation to generation has long fascinated me, as has magic and the supernatural. In a coal-blackened back shed, when I was six or seven, I saw a girl of about twelve do simple magic, passing her hand through a candle's flame and having her pet crow do tricks. Later, these elements came together and I wrote “To Whom it May Concern.”
