Why couldn't they just have published this edition from the same master layouts as the original two books? It looks like the typesetter for this edition copy-and-pasted the two books togehter in his word processor; and then allowed his cat to walk on the keyboard before generating the master files for printing.
But then, as a computer programmer myself, I relate really well to computer languages as a form of magic!
He says he won't be writing any more Wiz books for the near future, but he better change his tune, because I have cooked up a really wicked geas, and it will make him start cranking them out unless he relents and does it: ONE MORE TIME!
Well, Rick Cook, whataya
A modern programmer thrown into the world of magic. Unique look at a magic system that is based on computer language...story does a good job of telling the whole story so that you aren't left hanging for the second book, but does leave you wanting to further explore what happens to Wiz and his firey hedge-witch.
I felt the end was a bit rushed, but still it was great.
