Sheer magic

Shuffling through them, it struck me what a different proposition all this would have been in my own cop days. We didn't have copying machines, let alone fax....
Nowadays you just fed everything into a fax transmitter and it came out by sheer magic five or ten miles away, or on the other side of the world, for that matter.
—Lawrence Block, A Walk Among the Tombstones (1992)
