Our favorite Irish schemer is back in a new adventure.  After having stolen some fairy technology during his last encounter with the Underworld, Artemis has successfully put together a computer of the future that will put current technology into the dust bins.  And he has a marvelous plan how to make money from his C Cube.  He contacts Jon Spiro who is one of the leading manufacturers of computers and offers to not manufacture his C Cube in exchange for lots and lots of cash.  But, he is outsmarted by Spiro.  Outsmarted??  Artemis??  Is he losing his touch?   Sure he had planned on going straight after this caper.  But how could he have been so stupid to have put the fairy world in danger of discovery?  Join Artemis, Holly, Mulch Diggins and the others as they try to keep the Underworld safe from Mud Men.
