A FEW ALTERATIONS
Throckmorton P. Ruddygore, master wizard, had troubles--again!
Ruddygore had defeated the Dark Baron and exiled him from the magical realm of Husaquahr to Earth. But he hadn't counted on the Baron's using an earthly computer to create even more effective spells.

The climax is one of my favorite single scenes in all of fiction. (No spoilers) It would be wonderful if it happened to every demagogue......

Ruddygore doesn't get to this verse: "I'm very well acquainted, too, with matters mathematical,: I understand equations, both the simple and quadratical." Poor fellow.

A little harder to read than the 1st 2 books. There is less humor, and a more serious plotline. I love the character changes, and there were more than ever in this book. If you can't stand the thought of a heroic barbarian naming his magic sword Irving, you should probably read something else.

I just think that Chalker went one too many times to the well for this story. Stick with the first or even the second volume of this series.

I read tis book second instead of third. Fortunately missing some of the back story was not an issue.

This book regains a lot of what makes this series great, and that I didn't realize it was missing some books ago.

Runs ideas into the ground. I liked this writer, but he seemed stuck on the idea of people changing into something else.
