Summary
The story of Patera Silk, a devout priest whose destiny is wrapped up with the gods he serves, takes place within the Whorl, a vast, cylindrical starship that has traveled for generations and is crumbling into disrepair. Silk finds himself descending to base thievery, running afoul of a notorious crime lord, befriending a cyborg soldier, and encountering at least one of the gods of Mainframe. But when Silk encounters the Outsider, who may be a god of a very different sort, all his beliefs are shaken to the core, and his life swiftly takes a messianic turn
