A darker geometry---Bruno was the most stable linker that Colonel Buford Early's 'wild talents' project could find, but linkers always went catatonic after a certain amount of time connected to high level computers. Bruno knew intellectually that he had to minimize cumulative link time; he had to stay sane for as long as possible. But with the link, he was so much MORE than human. He could see the All. And more than that, he could extract every last bit of effectivness from the ship he was piloting, and so--maybe, just maybe--save himself and his lady love, who is also his Captain, from that most horrible of fates: capture by Kzin.
This volume also includes the stories 'Prisoner of War' by Paul Chafe; and 'The Colonel's Tiger' by Hal Colebatch
