The work in progress title for a scifi short story that Bakker has finished but has not yet got around to publishing.
One of the other conditions of possibility.

Wonder if Bakker will succeed in getting this published or not...

I love the title, especially given the context of his other scifi work like neuropath and crash space

I find what I could stand to read of Neuropath and Crash Space extremely disturbing and unnerving. Don't like reading them. At all.

I think that's his point- we don't want to face our future, but here it is!

Not since that last post link from Madness. AFAIK he's still finishing it and shopping it around, which doesn't mean much unfortunately.
