Good Night

Two last points for today:

SM Stirling's Conquistador has been ordered (see here);

I wondered how much we knew of Earth/Terra in Flandry's time apart from Admiralty Center - it seems quite a lot (see here).

When I have some time, I will reread what we have been told about Archopolis and the urbanized Earth to find out whether there is anything more to be said.

For images, google "futuristic cities" and you will find pictures that can be used to illustrate sf settings like Trantor or Archopolis.

Kaor, Paul!

Here's a striking bit from Chapter IV of A STONE IN HEAVEN, after Miriam Abrams had arrived in Archopolis, the sight of which had "dazed" her: "She collected her modest baggage, hailed a cab, blurted her destination to the autopilot, and fled. In nightmare beauty, the city gleamed, surged, droned around her."
