Content

There is a moon inhabited by people from terra with various mental "disorders", the left overs from the metal institution formerly based on that moon.

There are the "Alphas", former enemies of terra, who are now running business with the terrans, TV comedian Bunny Hentman among them.

And there is Chuck, a writer for the CIA, whose wife (a marriage councelor) is filing for divorce.

Chuck and his wife find themselves in a spy-operation that challenges your sense of reality and normality, conspiracies, chance and psi-powers.

And of course, there is the slime mould from Ganymede.

Awesome read.
