Far into the future, the Internet is jacked directly into your mind, an integrated brain-machine network known as the Psi-net. Psyche Corp. manufactures your custom-made dreams, but no one has called it Psyche Corp. for decades. The executive board of Psyche Corp. is the richest, most powerful group of individuals on the planet, and they are known as the Shadow Court. Styles have grown decadent and Elektro-Victorian, nanotechnology flows through your every vein.
Greetings, twenty-first century human, greetings from the Shadow Court. I hail from the City of God and I come as a messenger of the future. I am a Dream Spinner, a deliberate acouasm, a scientist of chimeras. Let me fill your mind with music.
