Synopsis The world was broke. Times were hard. The future was narrowing, darkly. Janie Girard lived alone in her world like others who had become single and frightened. The fact that the now-impoverished government was posturing for an out-and-out war between all peoples was evident. She was a young widow who lived with Captain Johnny, her Cockatoo, and her tenant, Everett Abraham. They shared her run-down Victorian house, in a once-beautiful, affluent neighborhood, full of foreclosed, empty houses. On a bus, Janie discovered that she had a atwina.

When his athingsa got out of control, his mission became evil; he morphed into one of his own creations, regretting giving being born the first timeThey were slowly moving down onto the top step. Everett was in the lead. Janie was close behind him. Down they came, in a silent, synchronized ballet. She had to warn them. Half of a brick was on the floor next to her by a jar of clear marbles.
