“Is there really a Merlin?”

Everybody on the war-torn planet Poictesme believed it existed. And they all believed that when this super-gigantic computer was located amid the mountains of surplus equipment that was the planet’s sole source of revenue, it would mean Utopia for everyone.

Conn Maxwell knew different. He had studied the records on Earth and he thought he knew the true facts about this cosmic computer. To tell them would be to panic Poictesme, so instead he set about a new search in his own way – with startling results.

H. Beam Piper, author of SPACE VIKING, has again produced an original and unusual novel of the space future.

    Great cover! Not a fan of Piper’s work at all but I’d buy that paperback just for the cover 😉
