From the book:
The future is now!
America in the late 1990s is a different place. An overwhelmed federal govenment tries to keep it together while the states form their own regional authorities; foreign investors own entire cities; new technologies make the rich richer, while the poor are thrown out of work; individuals with unexplainable special abilities - metabilities - hire out as mercenaries to the forces of both good and evil.
Farfetched? Some of it is happening already...
