A Few More Details
"...a bracelet of Old Martian silver..."
-Poul Anderson, "Hunters of the Sky Cave" IN Anderson, Sir Dominic Flandry: Last Knight Of Terra (Riverdale, NY, 2012), pp. 149-301 AT Chapter VIII, p. 205.
We know that the Mars of the Technic History has been colonized by extrasolar aliens and would like to know more about "Old Martian."
I seem to have missed Chives' "'...spiced meatballs...'" in previous food lists. (A Knight Of Ghosts And Shadows IN Sir Dominic Flandry, pp. 339-606 AT Chapter IV, p. 398)
A slave dealer's medic runs "'...complete cytological analyses.'" (Chapter V, p. 405) Flandry refers to "'Coprolite-brained characters...'" (ibid.) I needed to google both words.
Reading Poul Anderson is an endless education.
