New New York is the hub of Planet Earth in 3000 years. We have engineered nature, mobilized artificial intelligence and prospered in a spirit of unity and harmony until rumors of aliens in other worlds cause troubles in our own. It is up to Liera, an important official, to take action. But before he can act, forces beyond his grasp intervene. Wizards, bureaucrats, politicians, lovers, aliens and robots set in motion wheels that keep turning. Liera cant figure himself out, let alone figure out who is friend and who is foe. Yet he must save the people of Planet Earth from themselves. What will humankind learn? What price will the heroes pay?
