Queen City Jazz/Goonan, Kathle/Paper/0006483178/S048-D2
In 2032 Cincinnati became the fourth City in North America to vote for Conversion: it became Queen City, alive in itself, with flower buildings opening to giant information bees that harvest its evolving nanotechnology. Then came the Surge. It all went bad. A nanotech plague first destroyed civilization and then drove remaining humans insane. Verity was raised in a rural haven in its aftermath. She travels the dangerous and derelict road to Cincinnati in search of a cure for her companion Blaze whom she drags along wrapped in a nanotech cocoon. Cincinnati has become a place of legend, walled off from the rest of the world, a city of dreams endlessly reliving the fantasies of its creator. There Verity discovers her destiny.
