Urban Monad 116: A lofty spire a thousand stories high where 880,000 souls live out their perfectly regulated lives in peace and plenty. But inside this glorious world are a few who dare to doubt and dream:

Aurea Holston, beautiful young bride, who fears leaving the only world she's ever known;

Dillon Chrimes, cosmos group popstar, who becoes one with the urbmon in an orgiastic, mind-shattering trip;

Jason Quevedo, historian, who gets his kicks from the perverse savagery of an earlier age;

Siegmund Kluver, virile young man-on-the-way-up, who sees the nightmare behind the urbmon's shining facade;

and Michael Statler, who dares to escape...
