Printed in the U. RA 10 Prologue It was the celebration of the new year, the first day of the month of Sho-gatsu, and the celebrations were in full swing throughout the vast, slow-turning wheel that was Tenno Kyuden, the Palace of Heaven. His Divine Majesty, the Emperor of Man, had left the parties and ceremonials early, however, retiring to his private quarters.
Now, he floated alone in space, the stars of the Shichiju scattered about him, colored motes in emptiness. That vista of suns adrift against the fog-glowing band of the Milky Way was illusion, of course, a ViReality given form and texture by the AIs that governed the palace, but the Emperor found it a useful one, a way of putting into perspective his own relative unimportance against the sweep and glory of the galactic backdrop.
There were many among his subjects who thought of the Emperor as a god… though Shiginori Konoye the man was all too aware of his own frailty. In the eighty-fifth year of his reign, which he had called Fushi, an era-name meaning Immortality, he was Terran Standard years old. With medical nangineering and the antisenescence meteffectors coursing through his veins, cleaning, rebuilding, and repairing, there was theoretically no limit to the years of additional life he could expect.
Expecting, however, was one thing. Wanting was something else. Shiginori Konoye was tired. With most of his life passing here within the Imperial Court at Tenno Kyuden, the synchorbital Palace of Heaven perched atop the Singapore Sky-el, Shiginori had been raised from childhood in the understanding that government was Imperial Nihon's duty and burden in the great tapestry of the cosmos.
When the West had abandoned space travel five centuries earlier, a Nihon barely recovered from the ravages of war had stepped in, picked up the standard of Man's ascent to space, and carried it on.
Within fifty years, the economic strength rising from orbital factories and Lunar mines, not to mention the strategic advantages bestowed by orbital battle stations and laser platforms, had made Nihon the dominant power on the planet, a superpower easily able to assert control over Earth's impoverished, warring nations.
The result had been the Terran Hegemony, fifty-seven nations joined together within the benevolent embrace of the Teikokuno Heiwa, the Imperial Peace.
And when the K-T drive opened the worlds of other stars to terraforming and exploitation, the colonies of dozens of those nation-states had of course been added to the Hegemony.
The Shichiju - the name meant "the Seventy" and was a little out of date for that reason - now embraced seventy-eight inhabited worlds in seventy-two star systems, these motes drifting now just beyond the silken hem of Shiginori's haori.

If the rule of Nihon over the Hegemony seemed only right and natural to Shiginori, so, too, did the Hegemony's acceptance of that rule. It was for that reason that the Emperor of Man had been so surprised at the sharp and sudden flame of rebellion.
It was beyond understanding, really.
Rising tensions, the appearance of agitators and rioting mobs on worlds as far removed as New America and Rainbow, had preceded the creation of something called the Network, a rebel underground dedicated, it seemed, to tearing the Hegemony asunder. The latest reports suggested that at least five worlds of the Shichiju, and possibly many more, were about to join together in a confederacy, with Network organizers forming the new government.
At the same time, riots and protests had exploded at last into open conflict; the first battle of civil war had already been fought, at a world called Eridu some twenty-five light-years from Earth.Below we’ve a poem analysis of when i am dead my dearest by christina rossetti selected ten of Rossetti’s finest poems and an analysis of macbeths tragedy in macbeth a play by william shakespeare written a short paragraph introducing each of them; you can read the poem (accompanied, in most .
