''Magnus'' (formerly known as ''Wayfarer'' when it was published under Destiny Image) is a Christian Fantasy novel by Matthew Dickens chronicling the exploits of the 2,000-year-old Magnus Lehohn. Gifted with powers and immortality from {{God}}, he has spent centuries battling the evil forces in control of the world, and now must investigate the current going-ons in Tower Valley while battling Nephillim, squads of Mooks, demons, fallen angels, rescuing an escaped HotScientist, and finally confronting {{Satan}} himself.

Magnus is the first of the IAM trilogy, and the author has stated his plans to have the first book made into a comic book in the future.

In October of 2012, yet a third iteration of the book was released as an ebook, ''Magnus (The Musterion Casebook Files)'', with the character of Magnus re-invented as an ageless [[SteampunkGadgeteers Steampunk Gadgeteer]] known as the Horned Man rather than a FlyingBrick, along with a vastly different motivation and quest.
