“Merrows,” the project leader shouted over the hovertruck’s whining stabilizers. “Mermaids! Merfolk! Whatever you folks call ‘em. They are under the citizenship of Huron and in need of help.

“A story gives people some type of a handhold through their lives. They need to know that what they're doing now has a middle and it has an end. And they need to know that this end ends well for them. And if it doesn't, they need to write a different story.”
