Some people like to fly in the Dead Zone, using cloth wings. The living areas on the ceilings of the flats are called mirrors. Each flat is named, Tors Flats, Spinner Flats, London Flats, and Alkali Flats. Mirror Alkali is the ceiling of Alkali Flats.
The poor live in the flats. The flats are wild, and unpoliced for the most part, and when police come in, they don’t hesitate to use deadly force. Commerce flourishes in the flats, there are several markets in each flat, and everything belongs to somebody. The trash bins, for instance, belong to the Spotted Pack, a family or clan of uplifted hyenas. Everything broken is recycled, fixed, and resold, and the Spotted Pack gets it’s share of the proceeds. Spoiled food never goes to waste. Hyenas can digest virtually anything.
