This is a short story collection. Some of the work in here went on to form part of other work. In this case, the Greatwinter book Souls In the Great Machine, and also The Centurion's Empire. "Eyes" and "Destroyer" in the case of the former, and "The Deciad" and "Pax Romana" for the latter. So, there is an early look at these stories for particular fans of that work, plus some other interesting things as well.

A pair of researches into the use of Quantum Effect devices for medical reasons start a relationship: "There are probably few things quite so preposterous as a pair of thirty-five years old virgin hypochondriacs trying to teach each other about sex."

They end up in South America where they can test some of their discoveries and theories on people, who, when ending up dead, won't be noticed like they would in the country of origin.
