I am rereading Poul Anderson, "Territory" IN Anderson, Ed. Hank Davis, David Falkayn: Star Trader (New York, 2010), pp. 1-76. Before posting about this story, I searched the blog and found that I had previously posted about:

the planet, t'Kela;
t'Kelan society;
t'Kelan psychology.

With the passage of time, a story can be reread but almost as if for the first time. (This is particularly true of the Sherlock Holmes series.) I am amazed at how much environmental information Anderson was able to convey in one short story - and also how much I was able to summarize without fully understanding it.

I have nothing to add as yet. (Later: see The T'Kelan Solution.)
