Publisher blurb: "Patrick Honor was possessed by PPS, Psychic Power Sources, which led him, even tho he couldn't understand them. Beyond understanding was feeling: beyond feeling was knowing. Patrick Honor knew only that he had to go on. He had to explore the unknown, to escape his body, to travel to the root octave of the 9th Parallax. He had to find Octavia, the unearthly beauty who beckoned him from another world. There was so much to learn. What was the real power source? Was it sex or science or...love? What was the meaning of the number nine? Why was the President of the USA going to die on June 15, 1975? Eighty one days, exactly, before Patrick Honor's death!"
