hero of The Voice is a fictionalized Paul Fitzgerald, a middle-aged American
living in London. It is
the end of the year 2003, and a totally wired-up electronic world is about to celebrate the winter solstice.
However, before the world moves one step farther into the future, the voices from the past call to Paul in
his sleep, beckoning him to come and revisit them. Although Paul resists at first, he is compelled into
another world, and when he awakens comes face to face with a beautiful blond woman, and a black

not dreaming, Paul tries to sort the dreams into reality. But he soon discovers

Transitron, a huge communications corporation, has a profound interest in his dream life as well.

electronics today and why this will restore the Grail for eternity."
