AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Set in a far-future Australia where electricity has been outlawed and society is overviewed by human-powered computers (largely driven by librarians), restricted quasi-medieval guilds struggle for supremacy and to discover the secret of the past. This gradual understanding of past technologies, such as exploring the role of the orbiting space platforms, accelerates in the second volume (Colin Steele, SF Commentary No 77, p.53).
