Realm of the Kachinas Cover (

“Doctor Nadia Katerine was stoned again. The dizziness, the artificial gravity from the slowly rotating starship….her excitement about Mars once again forces her to seek the ground zero effects of the opium-laced tincture. Spiritual qualities she cherishes. And the poetry it writes:
Like the distant call,
Like the evocation of
An ancient ceremony,
We’re coerced to
take a role in this
Life’s pagent.
Residents of the Void
We obey the summons,
And spend our lives
Here as wanderers,
Seekers of oblivion.”
