"Several millennia in the future, Earth has become a backwater planet ignored by others in its galaxy.  It's one jewel is Cirque, the City of the Abyss, into which the River Fundament falls in magnificent cataracts.  It is a city of love and harmony, with inspiring religious rites.
But in the Abyss there lives the Beast: loathsome to imagine, frightening to confront, for it is formed of the cast off hates of the people of Cirque.  A beast whose body is refuse, whose mind is as black as sin.  And now, after centuries, it is climbing out of the Abyss to claim its own."
