Congratulations !

I liked the last minute improvement in the Ebsa meets Paer scene with the extra backstory.

Unfortunately the last minute meant that your loyal minions had no opportunity to point out that here (now) and in Tale of Three Interns you have Paer a 216 whereas in Empire she's a 215 ("A single dropped gene" Xiat, ch 4).


Little Egret (loyal minion) in Walton-on-Thames who edits to note that Olympian also has the 216 which I didn't spot.

I know that hind sight is a pain, but wouldn't it have been neat(er) to have the Olympics in Paer's horse story be in Rio? Even if you nuked it in history (and without going through a lot of research I don't remember if one or another of the break points was a nuke in Rio) there should be something rebuilt by now? I mean, you still call it Paris, although it is acknowledged to be in a new place.

This is SF/F it's not going to come to the notice of the Horse crowd, nor the Olympics crowd. And will be totally irrelevant thereafter.

Most of Europe and North America were nuked in the 1960s. Late in the Unification Wars . . . say 2500ADish . . . a few cities were nuked. Buenos Aires was specifically mentioned in _Dancer_. I have no idea about Rio.

And Paris was mentioned as having been chosen for the World Capitol because it was neutral territory, not the home territory of any of the three now unified powers, The Islamic Union, The Imperial Chinese, and the South American what-ever-the-heck-I-called-it.

I would grumble that you ruined my evening by forcing me to read this but really ... can't complain to much about a book I enjoy. :)

Books that keep me up is one of those hate/love things. I'm delighted to think I've added to the problem.

I got to bed about 45 minutes late because I wouldn't put it down. So now I'm running around yawning this morning.
