Travelers Between Worlds
"'...the theorems I do know let me cross from continuum to continuum, with a fair probability of landing in whichever one I want, or a reasonable facsimile of it. I even deduced there had to be an interuniversal nexus. That's how I found the Old Phoenix.'"
-Poul Anderson, A Midsummer Tempest (London, 1975), Chapter xi, pp. 95-96.
Chiron the centaur in the Inn of the Worlds' End:
"...I have travelled here before. Those of us who travel between realms encounter it on occasion."
-Neil Gaiman, The Sandman: Worlds' End (New York, 1994), p. 146.
The hostess of the Worlds' End (whom we suspect is Kali):
"By the door. Just leave and walk. You will return to the worlds from which you came, or ones very similar." (p. 158)
Thus, Kali (we think) echoes Valeria. It is all one multiverse.
