Publisher's Summary

Book Four of the Velvet Comet - the enormous, exclusive, elaborate, and infamous orbiting brothel

Screenwriter and novelist Nate Page arrives aboard the empty Velvet Comet 23 years after it is decommissioned by the Vainmill Syndicate. The light-topic musical holographic production that Nate is writing is based on the Velvet Comet in its prime, and requires research available only through Cupid, the ship's still-functioning and nearly-self-aware onboard computer.

As the cynical screenwriter and the unemotionally truthful computer struggle to create a work of fiction true to the reality of life aboard the Comet, Nate's agent makes it clear that prostituting your art is not any different from prostituting your body.
