The Warlock in Spite of Himself is a fantasy novel originally published in 1969, the first book in Warlock of Gramarye series. The title is a play on the title of Moliere's Le medecin, malagre lui - (The Doctor, in Spite of Himself).
As the Vietnam continued, Stasheff's novel clothed his thinly veiled commentary about the proper uses of government and democracy in a fantasy about interstellar travel, fairies, unusual flora and refugees fleeing persecution.
