If you're not already hooked by the epigraph, I don't know what to tell you:
"Go back to An-fang, the Peace Square at An-Fang, the Beginning Place at An-Fang, where all things start (...) An-Fang was near a city, the only living city with a pre-atomic name (...) The headquarters of the People Programmer was at An-Fang, and there the mistake happened: A ruby trembled. Two tourmaline nets failed to rectify the laser beam. A diamond noted the error. Both the error and the correction went into the general computer."
- Cordwainer Smith, The Dead Lady of Clown Town, 1964.If you are interested, please leave a comment.
