Shock Wave by Walt & Leigh Richmond (Cover by Hoot von Zitzenwitz, 127 pages)
Problem 1: An Earthman is suddenly an mysteriously transported to an alien planet: an utterly empty, completely lifeless outpost of a far-flung galaxy. Terry Ferman has no idea where he is, how he came to be on the godforsaken world, or how to get home.

But the computer is programmed to give information only to those properly trained and qualified to understand it - Terry is not. Solution: Terry must outwit the rigid electro-mechanical being to learn the secrets that will get him back to Earth... but the solution is the biggest problem of them all.
