"Lost World"

"...the hard angular shapes and smooth mathematically precise curves made him nostalgic for the lost world...."
-SM Stirling, A Meeting At Corvallis (New York, 2007), Chapter Twelve, p. 305.


The Lost World
References In Time Heals ("...that forever lost world between the Congress of Vienna and the murder at Sarajevo...")
1984 ("...the destroyed world...")
"...a world forever lost..." (here)

Evocative phrases, worth recording.

Kaor, Paul!

Evocative and melancholy indeed! And yet again I wonder what kind of world we might have seen if the assassination at Sarajevo had not occurred.
