|Plot Summary of Neptune Crossing|
John Bandicut was a test pilot on Triton until an accident left him unable to fly. Now working on the surface, he discovers an alien artifact, which somehow downloads an alien intelligence into his brain. It's bad enough that he has to deal with having a peeping tom in his brain--one whose interests don't always coincide with Bandicut's--but it's even worse when he learns that it's up to *him* to save Earth from destruction, quite possibly at the cost of his own life.
