Abstract:

Orcus is a rogue planet, a runaway world, finally captured by the Sun's gravitational field, but only after doing terrible damage to a future Earth. Even before this catastrophic event, however, the human race had been split into different factions--the Ants and Antelope. The Ants had become specialised in mechanical aptitudes, trying to create a mechanical machine-like society,while the Antelope who specialised in the aesthetic, sought balanced development. The antelopes fled en masse to Orcus, to build a civilisation there, whilst the Ants remained on Earth, periodically sending raiding parties to Orcus to capture girls and women.
