In real life, all but one of California's eight Channel Islands are sparsely inhabited. Catalina, the most well-known, is home to about 3,700 people, most of whom live in the city of Avalon.

But I've often wondered what it would have been like if the islands had been more completely developed, heavily urbanized like the rest of the Southland...

The Channel Islands are a product of Southern California's generally insane geology. Fault lines dragging new land out of the sea... and that geologic mayhem is where I begin this story...
