The endless decades of self-flagellation, the long years of chopping ourselves to slivers in order to propitiate the Goddess of Death, have left us exhausted and penniless.

Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra.

The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
