The boss there is its president—a large creature of unstable, shifting form once called “human.” The world of his dedicated worker contains only the deck and the sea of mud surrounding it, and and the worker’s daily routine is anything but peaceful.

A strange journey into the far future of genetic engineering, and working life.

Will Umari and her master ever comprehend the secrets of nanodust?
