The Dragon on the Border by Gordon R. Dickson

Description: Jim, the product of a technologically advanced civilization 600 years ahead of the one he now calls home and now minor apprentice in magic has become the target of the “Dark Powers” in their latest attempt to disrupt the balance between Chance and History. This is due to Jim’s advanced knowledge and recently acquired skills that have made him a most dangerous and difficult adversary. During this latest contest, Jim and his friends, Sir Brian and Dafydd, get entangled with the Hollow Men and a foreign plot to invade England. In order to prevent this latest threat, Jim must rely on his wits and physical skills for he is forced to conserve what little magical energy he has since his account only received a slight credit from his last encounter with the “Dark Powers”. Finally, Jim confronts what any advanced person fears most in a backwards culture, injury and threat of infection. Not to himself, but to one of his closest friends.
