This was a Golden Age, a time of high adventure, rich living, and hard dying... but nobody thought so. This was a future of fortune and theft, pillage and rapine, culture and vice... but nobody admitted it. This was an age of extremes, a fascinationg century of freaks... but nobody loved it. (opening paragraph)

Also known as "Tiger! Tiger!".

This is where the Tomorrow People series got the word "jaunt" for teleport from.
