In Raven House, weavings show the ancient tales:
Niall of the Nine Hostages and the Lady of Tara;
Ishtar's descent into the Underworld;
Odin grasping runes beneath the World Tree.
Are Niall and the Lady one tale or two?
Relevance to Poul Anderson? Like total:
Niall destroys Ys which is named after Isis who was identified with Ishtar! (see here);
Odin hangs himself from the Tree to gain the runes in War Of The Gods.
My soul, drawn into the texts, wanders in a multi-dimensional wasteland between the Emberverse and the Technic History.
