Dim Days And Light Nights

Ivanhoan days are dim because the sun is a red dwarf but the nights are brighter than Earth's because:

"...the giant stars of the Pleiades cluster bloomed everywhere aloft, and the nebula which enveloped them glowed lacy across heaven." (The Van Rijn Method, p. 331)

Poul Anderson's cosmic environments are often colorful and always different.

Please accept a short post this morning while I eat a hasty breakfast before other activities.

Kaor, Paul!

And I have read of how, in both "Three Cornered Wheel" and "The Season of Forgiveness," Ivanhoans found terrrestrial lights and heating painfully bright and hot.

And my sister in law has had difficulty reading "The Season of Forgiveness" because it seems so "dark" to her.
