SYNOPSIS:  “Confluence: an artificial world orbiting an obscure star beyond the edge of the galaxy, a flat strip twenty thousand kilometres long, bounded on one side by the Rim Mountains, on the other by the Great River. Confluence: home to thousands of alien races and raised to intelligence by god-like descendants of humanity who long ago retreated from the Universe into an artificial Black Hole. Confluence: a world abandoned by its creators, its stagnant civilization threatened by the heresies of the last humans, members of a five-million-year-old expedition to the neighbouring galaxy.”
