#22: The year is 1923, which means we are deep in proto-Fascism territory. Raven started this read and warned that it was as if Ayn Rand wrote Caesar's Column. Never let an Organic Chemist run wild with Science Fiction, always bring a back-up Biologist. Come for Nella's total saltiness, stay for this villain's POV...
