A Galaxy Science Fiction novel. In 2064, Chester W Chester inherits his great-grandfather's estate: a million credits liability in back taxes; a mangy and defunct circus; a white elephant of a Victorian mansion; and the old man's invention--a computer called GNE (Genie for short), an idiot savant that had the world's knowledge stored in its memory but hadn't the foggiest idea what to do with that knowledge. At least that's what Chester thought--until he made the mistake of trying to operate the computer without having read the instruction book.
