He took his card and was taken to his seat by a grinning steward. Was this some kind of joke? ' Cormac sat down. The city AI made a mistake? He looked around.

Stanton glanced at the ophidapt, then at Pelter. His remaining violet eye seemed almost to be glowing. 'Come on, we have to go,' said Stanton.
