All the safe and normal assumptions are thrown out the window with Zalchis. The universe is collapsing, the suns are going out. The end of the world is already over and all that's left is less than a thousand years until the great big black hole at the center of whatever is left finally swallows the bits and pieces of wreckage, debris and ruins that make up the Great Ring. Life in Zalchis is grim, the kind of grim more in line with decapitation than with a paper-cut. Nasty, brutal and short only come about half-way to describing life in Zalchis. Death is not the worst thing that walks astride the broken remains of a thousand-thousand shattered worlds. Fear doesn't carry the same nerve-killing charge any longer. Doom is at hand. But there are those who fight against the final dying of the light. And there are those who seek to bring on the darkness once and for all. Which will you be?
