Synopsis

After a theft is interrupted a dragon-like creature is caught in an explosion.

Stickleback is revived by Orlando, five years after he died.

Orlando tells Stickleback that In the five years since he died the state has appropriated the workshops and warehouses which the Countess Irena Bernoulli had secreted across the country. Those with military applications had been kept by the state, though access had been granted to certain other technologies to such luminaries as Bazalgette and Brunel, who have proceeded to apply what they have learnt to transport, sanitation, communication and commerce.

Professor Challenger had brought back a Saurian Hominid egg from South America, which has been used to breed hundreds of millions of drones.  The Saurian Hominids, or Sorries seem to live for just a few years, are apparently passive, servile and obedient and have been intensively farmed until it is estimated that there are thirty for every human on the planet.  After death, their bodies are ground into meal and fed to the next generation.  Despite their apparent passivity there has been a recent attack on a Sorrie factory.
