Professor Diggz Dorin is not just another tomb raider. She's a planet-hopping exoarcheologist skilled in unearthing alien artifacts. While tunneling deep below the crust of a small moonlet orbiting the gas giant planet Epsilon-413, she discovers a strange bio-mechanical device, a living transdimensional Entity, which claims to serve as a kind of cosmic genie. The alien seeks only to bring Order out of Chaos, to help shape the astronomical frontier by rolling back entropy and the thermodynamic laws which tend toward greater disorder. Or so it says.
When Diggz wishes for Peace on Earth, the Entity grants her desire in a most unexpected way. Since the very nature of life is conflict, and the planet's biosphere functions in a finely-tuned frenzy of constant upheaval, the Entity's solution is to obliterate the planet's tumultuous biological contaminant so that there can be peace at last.
Horrified by the misunderstood intentions of her wish, and the accidental extinction of her home world, Professor Dorin sets out on a years-long quest to somehow undo the damage she's caused, to find the Entity again, unwish her wish, and once again set things right. She's aided in her efforts by a renegade bartending android named Dent and a semi-aquatic, squidlike companion called Tucson. All the while, Diggz is being relentlessly pursued by survivors from the Earth's calamity, and alternately guarded and harrassed by Lt. Syrtis Gabriel of the United Mars Colonies Central Security. Only a miracle of divine proportions can restore the Earth and set Diggz's tortured soul at rest.
Be careful what you wish for . . . very careful!
