Overview

THE WARLOCK'S SON TAKES OFF, AND A NEW ADVENTURE IS LAUNCHED!

His father's a warlock; his mother, a witch; together, they're the most powerful wizards in the world--or so it seems on the planet Gramarye, where modern technology is the ultimate "magic." Now their son Magnus Gallowglass, tired of standing in his parents' shadow, is leaving home - in a starship driven by the brain of the robo-horse Fess - in search of fame and fortune. It's one small step for science - one giant leap for wizardry!

But for someone raised on a medieval planet, the modern world is strange and confusing place, full of treacherous people and unexpected dangers. Is Magnus well on his way to creating his own legend? Or destined for trouble, failure, and an early grave?

About the Author

Christopher Stasheff spent his early childhood in Mount Vernon, New York, but spent the rest of his formative years in Ann Arbor, Michigan. He has always had difficulty distinguishing fantasy from reality and has tried to compensate by teaching college. When teaching proved too real, he gave it up in favor of writing full time. He tends to pre-script his life, but can't understand why other people never get their lines right. This causes a fair amount of misunderstanding with his wife and four children. He writes novels because it's the only way he can be the director, the designer, and all the actors too.

Christopher Stasheff is a teacher, thespian, techie, and author of science fiction & fantasy novels. One of the pioneers of "science fantasy," his career spans four decades, 44 novels (including translations into Czech, German, Italian, Russian, and Japanese), 29 short stories, and seven anthologies. His novels are famous for their humor (and bad puns), exploration of comparative political systems, and philosophical undertones.
