Cursed and Consulted

The Continuing Adventures of a Boy and His Dog
(A book in the Wizardry series)
An omnibus of novels by

It all began when the wizards of the White League were under attack by their opponents of the Black League and one of their most powerful members cast a spell to bring forth a mighty wizard to aid their cause. What the spell delivered was master hacker Walter "Wiz" Zumwalt. The wizard who cast the spell was dead and nobodynot the elves, not the dwarves, not even the dragons-could figure out what the shanghaied computer nerd was good for.

But in short order, Zumwalt found that spells were a lot like computer programs. In spite of the Wiz's unprepossessing appearance, he defeated the all-powerful Black League and won the love of Moira, a beautiful red-haired witch.

But that was only the beginning. Now Wiz has to deal with new and equally menacing forces. A deadly curse has been laid on him by the elf Lisella. A couple of computer criminals from his own world, the type who would consider a computer virus that would destroy civilization a way cool idea, have forged an alliance with the destructive forces of primal chaos. Worst of all, the dragons, who view with alarm the way that the Wiz and his computer hackertype spells are remaking the realm into a human-friendly universe, and consequently an increasingly not-so-friendly universe to dragons, have abducted him. If he wants to see hearth and home again, not to mention the fair Moira, he'll have to come up with a new plan that will leave no dragon behind.

Once again, it's a job for a master sorcerer. And when it comes to spells and sorcery, nobody but nobody can beat a Silicon Valley computer geek!
