Celebrate The Time Patrol

Poul Anderson's Time Patrol series is inexhaustible. Recently, I had no intention of posting at length yet again about the Time Patrol. However, SM Stirling commented (see here) on an emergent contradiction in Anderson's account of time. But Mr Stirling made this comment because I had already been drawn back onto the subject of the Time Patrol by the mention of synchronicity.

I might later today get back onto the current agenda of reading Stirling's The Sunrise Lands and Anderson's Murder In Black Letter and rereading Stieg Larsson's Volume III - or there might be further thoughts on the Time Patrol. But first there will have to be a walk through the historic city of Lancaster under a blue sky.

Kaor, Paul!

For readers, Paul was talking about Anderson's earlier "tough rubber bands" analogy and his use of chaos theory in later Time Patrol stories. And the tension or difficulty this posed for time traveling stories.

And I still wonder how many Trygve Yamamura short stories were written by PA. I don't think "Dead Phone" was the only Yamamura short.
