Guests In The Old Phoenix
The guests introduce themselves:
Valeria Matuchek from the United States of America;
Holger Carlsen of Denmark;
Rupert of the Rhine Palatinate, nephew of Charles I, grandson of King James VI of Scotland/I of England and of Queen Anne who had been a Danish princess (Rupert adds that England and Scotland have been friendly with Denmark at least since Hamlet).
Thus, we recognize:
Valeria and Holger from previous novels by Anderson;
Rupert and his royal relatives from history;
Hamlet from Shakespeare.
We realize that reality is turning itself inside out for our enjoyment and edification.
