      W.r.t. your second point, about why an evil spell
      would be in a "good" wizard's book, I'm reminded of
      the oft-heard comment that technology is
      neutral...that is, it can be used for good or evil,
      but that it, by itself, is neither (pace, Tolkien!).

      In his Long Sun/Short Sun books Gene Wolfe uses the term "black technology" as a direct counterpart to "black magic."
