Long Description: 

Librarians in Space

A single yellow rose summons Jedrek nor Talin back to Old Earth. A decade ago, he served the Terran Grand Library as one of the guardians of Humanity’s collected knowledge. Now the last Librarian has called together the members of Jedrek’s broken work circle to protect the Library from its greatest threat.

Four millennia after the Terran Empire fell, the Galaxy’s communications system is breaking down. Jedrek and his coworkers set off into deep space to repair ancient Imperial equipment. But they aren’t the only ones…for the warring remnants of the old Empire have also dispatched ships on the same mission.

Suddenly, a peaceful settlement becomes ground zero in a clash of Galactic cultures—and a bare handful of Librarians are all that stand between the Galaxy and disastrous interstellar war….


Library Journal says:

When former librarian Jedrek nor Talin, now attempting to recover failing technology from the defunct Terran Empire, receives a single yellow rose by special courier, he must travel to Old Terra -- Earth -- to come to the assistance of his old circle of librarians. A voyage to deep space to repair ancient communications equipment places Jedrek and his companions in the middle of a situation that could erupt into interstellar war and destroy human civilization forever. Author and librarian Sakers adds to his "Scattered Worlds" series (Weaving the Web of Days) a tale of adventure and intrigue as only a group of librarians can do it. A good addition to most sf collections and sure to be popular with library staff everywhere.
