      The war for souls continues against Myra Morgana (The God Killer, The Beast, himself/itself/herself, the multiple gods of multiple worlds, and one-time Alta humanoid female). Except Morgana's chief opponents, who haven't yet died in the struggle and still detrimentally possess physical bodies (Morgana having long-since transmorphed into less vulnerable primary matrix), grow old and weary and less able to cope. Morgana's enemies, likewise, are hampered by their increasing inability to recruit members from newer generations who are more enlightened than to become involved in a chauvinistic vendetta based primarily upon the males of the species' inability to accept a once-female as dominant in any Godhead. The newer generations, too, are less religious and more favorably inclined to sell their souls and the souls of others, by way of acquiring the material things Morgana can provide in exchange for allegiance.

    Will, though, Murlock and Cyris The Bard Professor's one ace in the hole, the young, handsome, and virile, Tyrone of the Planet Thear - a humanoid genetically engineered by alien scientist Tarlum Mannix from a deleted Alta gene pool - be the key that topples, once and forever, the increasingly powerful, bored, jaded, and longing-for-her-own-kind Morgana?
