Outlaw of the galactic network!
The Web links the many worlds of humanity. Most people can only use it to communicate. Some can retrieve and store data, as well as use simple precoded programs. Only a privileged few are able to create their own software, within proscribed limits.
And then there are the Webspinners.
Grailer is Fourth Literate, able to manipulate the Web at will - and use it for purposes unintended and impossible for anyone but the most talented Webspinner. Obviously, he cannot be allowed to live. Condemned to death at the age of nine, Grailer must go underground, hiding his skills, testing his powers - until he is ready to do battle with the Web itself!
