520    Mycroft Canner is a convict. For his crimes he is required,
       as is the custom of the 25th century, to wander the world 
       being as useful as he can to all he meets. Carlyle Foster 
       is a sensayer--a spiritual counselor in a world that has 
       outlawed the public practice of religion, but which also 
       knows that the inner lives of humans cannot be wished 
       away. The world into which Mycroft and Carlyle have been 
       born is as strange to our 21st-century eyes as ours would 
       be to a native of the 1500s. It is a hard-won utopia built
       on technologically-generated abundance, and also on 
       complex and mandatory systems of labelling all public 
       writing and speech. What seem to us normal gender 
       distinctions are now distinctly taboo in most social 
       situations. And most of the world's population is 
       affiliated with globe-girdling clans of the like-minded, 
       whose endless economic and cultural competion is carefully
       managed by central planners of inestimable subtlety. To us
       it seems like a mad combination of heaven and hell. To 
       them, it seems like normal life. And in this world, 
       Mycroft and Carlyle have stumbled on the wild card that 
       may destablize the system: the boy Bridger, who can 
       effortlessly make his wishes come true. Who can, it would 
       seem, bring inanimate objects to life.
