NIGHTWORD by Margaret Weis

NIGHTWORD

KIRKUS REVIEW

Another Starshield yarn (Sentinels, 1996), continuing the adventures of Earth astronaut Jeremy Griffiths (he’s had a huge grab-bag of knowledge dumped into his head, courtesy of a wizard who expired before he could explain why) and galactic Omnet operative Merinda Neskat, set against a hybrid fantasy/sf backdrop designed to permit dragons, wizards, and suchlike to coexist in the same universe as computers and spaceships. Why anyone should want this is another matter entirely. The fearsome weapon of the title is missing, and the fate of the galaxy trembles in the balance. Jeremy, of course, with his vast if involuntary knowledge, knows where it is. Problem is, the bad guys know that Jeremy knows. . . . Addicts only--but there are zillions of them. (Author tour)
