In a worldwide city, the generating of magic is a science and its deployment a technology. Magic is fuel captured, stored and transmitted by the Plasm Authority, but rogue sources of plasm are used far more imaginatively by the legendary Constantine, who would be Lord of a New City.

THE GLORY HOLE
Better than sex, better than drugs, plasm is the solvent of mind and matter once called magic. In the world-wide city of the future, generating plasm is a science, its deployment a technology – and it’s metered at the domestic end. That is, the rich have plenty, the poor next to none. Aiah is a bored clerk with the Plasm Authority until she stumbles upon an unmapped well of the coveted stuff. A thousand Angels of Power sing in Aiah’s mind.
Constantine, Metropolitan in exile, mage and revolutionary, is happy to buy, illegally, all the plasm Aiah has to offer. But he wants more than plasm from Aiah. Along with ambitious wizards, human dolphins, gene twisted avians and a demon living in the plasm mains, Aiah can help Constantine to challenge the Ascended Ones themselves. Unless she burns out.
