This spouse dates back to my "SW91" stories.  In my world, if you hang
out with superhumans for twenty years, some of it will eventually rub
off. "New Russians" are more of a real-world phenomenon, making a
guest appearance here.

Oh, right.  I'll have to update the story to explain how (1) minor
mystic power items are so widely available since part of Serbia
disappeared into the realm of dreams, that Russian robber barons use
them as toys; (2) Stephen is the world's most powerful telepath and
was "talking" via mental projection, even as he was spending ten
minutes flying from North America to European Russia.

> Overall interesting!

Thanks for the review.   I considered not sharing until more
polishing... but if I didn't throw this stuff out before it was
perfectly ready, I'd never get it out.
