After The Battle

After the Battle of the Cutty Sark (see here), Prince William (see image) and a reference to "...the halls of sunken Ys..." on the same page (p. 236), I am speechless.

I did not set out to decorate this blog with pictures of members of the British royal family but then I did not expect them to show up as characters in a novel either.

I must regain my composure before reading the next chapter (Nine), which returns us to our American Wiccans.

Kaor, Paul!

Now THAT startled me INDEED, this mention of Ys! Yet another very pleasing allusion to Anderson's works, this time THE KING OF YS.

I'm not really surprised you are seeing so many members of the UK royal family. The devastation caused by the Change opened the way for the King and his son to take a more active role in politics and war.
