"'So, it is given to me to know how the men of years to come will think of me...
"'...or my deeds and name would have been known, if things had gone forward as they did in the past your age remembers...
"'And this Walker has robbed me of!
"'And much of what Walker knows is the fruit of my people's minds and hands?'"
-SM Stirling, On The Oceans Of Eternity (New York, 2000), Chapter Twenty-Three, p. 473.
Very good: an understanding of time travel, of causality violation and of historical progress plus the beginning of a motive to rebel against William Walker, King of Men! Arnstein makes good use of his time as a captive.
