''it was the End of Summer of the year 2035. The Global Village that was the World was ruled by a Kangaroo Court of Compassionate Aldermen who ordered assassinations when it was deemed to be for the common good. As a sign of their openness, they were always experimenting to find new ways of looking at the World. Most of these experiments would fail; some of them would succeed to an extent; and others would succeed only to well, and so would have to be crushed in the shell for the good of the World.''.

''there have always been the Twenty One Pillars of Rectitude who sustain the World; Seven Saints to insure the sanity of the World; Seven Technicians to insure it's correct mechanical working; and Seven Scribbling Giants to write it's scenarios and histories. The Saints and Technicians were always in plentiful supply. But not the Scribbling Giants. So when Atrox Fabulinus, the greatest of the Scribbling Giants, was most foully murdered with his own nine-foot goose feather quill, the World staggered with the collapse of it's most sustaining pillar.''
