Gary's stories tend to be about magical or cursed objects and how misuse of them can have dangerous effects. Gary and Tucker's father owns a magic shop, which is probably where he got the inspiration to many of his stories. His stories also have the recurring character of Sardo, a wannabe magician and owner of Sardo's Magic Mansion.
