The situation seems hopeless until Tyrell meets Dr. Jania Sycell, a former systems designer who broke the final barrier between the human mind and computer technology. Together they have the technical expertise they?ll need to get out alive . . . but escape may only trap them in the hands that wield Hype!About the AuthorPaul Chafe is the author of "Prisoner of War," published in Larry Niven's Man-Kzin Wars VII, and described by Larry Niven as "the best kziniti story not by me."
