After a trip around the universe, Inquisitor Dagon of the starship 'Sardanapalus' has returned to Earth.

However, the virus has unleashed machine consciousness and Dagon himself is infected. He’s a Dead Boy. Even so he can dream of a universe in which his Dead sister Primavera is once more fully human. Dreams are Dead Things.
