Summary (From the publisher):

The Strangest Future imagined by any SF writer... An interstellar empire ruled by the Lords of the Instrumentality, whose access to the drug stroon from the planet Norstrilia confers on them virtual immortality. A future in which wealthy humanity is served by the underpeople, genetically engineered animals turned into the semblance of people. A future in which great ships sail the stars. A future of wonder and myth, and extraordinary imagination.
