The Narrator And The Spiral Arm
-Poul Anderson, "The Trouble Twisters" IN Anderson, David Falkayn: Star Trader (Riverdale, NY, 2010), pp. 77-208 AT II, p. 98.
What does this single sentence tell us about the narrator of "The Trouble Twisters"? That one word, "...we...," reveals that s/he is not omniscient and is a contemporary of Nicholas van Rijn and David Falkayn. We also know that s/he is not Hloch or any other contributor to to The Earth Book Of Stormgate. That is all.
We should pull together our references to the "one spiral arm":
