A novella. Introduction by Michael Swanwick.

If history is a story told by the victors, what happens to the truth?

The Quiet War is over. The rebels have been defeated, and soldiers of Earth's Three Powers Occupation Force now police the rebellious colonies on the moons of the solar system's outer planets.

Plans for reconstruction are proceeding apace but, as Professor-Doctor Fredo Graves discovers, the psychological scars of war are more permanent than the superficial damage to the colonies.

Graves is a historian who has come to the once-lovely city of Paris, Dione, to construct a psychological profile of the charismatic rebel leader Marisa Bassi.

Vain, arrogant, and meddlesome, Graves soon finds himself enmeshed in intrigues more deadlier than he suspects, for the rebellion is far from finished, and its true story is far stranger than he imagines.
