Not a bad yarn about a human man ruled by the machine portion of his mind who finds himself stuck on a planet where magic works. Pretty good.

The cyborg code-named ''Slant'' was sent out as an Independent Reconaissance Unit during an interstellar war between Earth and its colonies. The fighting ended three hundred years ago, but Slant's computer does not admit this -- he is compelled to carry on as if the war were still raging.

Then he comes across a planet where his sensors register ''gravitational anomalies.'' The computer interprets these as enemy weapons research.

The local inhabitants call the anomalies ''magic.''

I love the Lawrence Watt-Evans Ethshar series, but for some reason have trouble getting into his other works. This seems to have promise, but I can't stick with it. May be a little too much of a cross between SciFi and Fantasy for me.
