Once upon a time, Major Mick Gilligan, USAF, didn’t believe in Magic. Nor, had
he been told of it, would he have believed in the elf Lisella, or cared that
she had cursed master programmer Wiz Zumwalt, later of Cupertino and now of an
alternate world where magic works like a computer program.
But that was before he took his F-15 out over the Bering Sea on a top-priority
intercept, came out on the losing end of a dogfight with a dragon, and found
himself caught in a climactic battle that pitted Wiz and his fellow Silicon
Valley hackers against a couple of computer criminals in alliance with the
forces of primal chaos.
Before he was done, Major Mick Gilligan would join with an ulikely gang of
programmers, wizards, elves, dragon cavalry, gremlins, demons and a stolen
Russian super-computer in a desperate effort to save both the world of magic
and his own.
