Merlin--the legendary name that conjures up visions of unlimited knowledge and power. Merlin--the godlike, infallible computer that could mean the salvation of a war-torn human race.

But does such a fantastic cybernetic marvbel really exist? Is Merlin just another legend of the spaceways, as most people believe? Or is it really hidden somewhere on the colony planet Poictesme?

And if it is found, will it save mankind...or be its destruction?
