Publisher Comments:

It's 2054...and Phil Gottner doesn't know where his life is.His girlfriend is hooked on merge, a drug used in "bacteria-style" sex. His father has just been swallowed up by a hyperspatial anomaly that materialized from a piece of art. And at the funeral, Phil meets and falls in love with Yoke Starr-Mydol, an elusive young lovely visiting from the moon. But his ardent pursuit of the resisting Yoke is leading Phil to suspect that there is more to his father's absorption than he originally surmised; that it is linked somehow to an alien presence at the bottom of the sea, and to the mind-over-matter-enabling gift they are freely dispensing to an irresponsible human race. And now Phil and Yoke have been cast into the unlikely roles of saviors, as they rush to solve the mystery of the overly generous Metamartians and their hungry fourth-dimensional god, Om, before humanity achieves its long-anticipated destiny and obliterates itself completely.
