With the help of Antooma mechanic Zeb Tooklesnap and his nifty dirigible, Harry and Steve manage to evade the Flendleheim-backed scoundrels. As they drift across the desolate Flogorian Badlands, Harry takes stock of how far he's come and how much he's changed. Will he find what he's looking for in Canyon City? What if there's no way home? Does Harry even want to go? Whatever happens, d-day's approaching for Harry Blandford.
