"English village." I cannot copy all the images here.)
Sir Nigel Loring thinks:
"...I'm more at home in an England of farmers and squires and parsons than one of cities and motorways and the Internet..."
-SM Stirling, The Protector's War (New York, 2006), Chapter Three, p. 95.
I prefer the cities, motorways and Internet. But I suggest that in future we can have both: a civilization transcending divisions between work and leisure and between city and country with enclaves of farms, squires and parsons for anyone who wants them.
We enjoy reading both about the catastrophic Change and about post-Change rurality. Very few would enjoy living through the former. Some would enjoy living in the latter, although Stirling emphasizes how much physical effort is necessary for survival. This is Society for Creative Anachronism fiction which, of course, reminds us of Poul Anderson.
Here is another local reference: Odell's Bistro on High St (p. 98). I have not found the Bistro by googling although the name Odell is there.
