In the fantasy novels of Rick Cook, a generic term for magical teleportation that could be performed by any wizard with sufficient power. Wizards in the old tradition have one spell for walking the Wizard's Way, and Wiz Zumwalt created another one under his early spell compiler system, later ported to the updated WIZ-DOS. The latter is invoked with the command words, "backslash transport, arg [name of location to transport to], exe."

Walking the Wizard's Way is generally safer than traveling overland, but carries its own dangers. Someone of malicious intent can intercept a wizard walking the Wizard's Way and divert him or her to a different location. Such a trick was used by remnants of the Dark League to kidnap Wiz and bring him to the City of Night.
