Recent associative thought processes on this blog:
Jerry Pournelle's CoDominium future history;
within that, Prince Of Sparta by Jerry Pournelle and SM Stirling;
within that, tumultuous events in the Spartan Senate;
by association, tumultuous events in the World Federation Parliament of Poul Anderson's The Star Fox;
also, the Council of Suffetes in Poul and Karen Anderson's King of Ys Tetralogy;
by extension, the entire Tetralogy;
by comparison, other works by Anderson.
I am now well into rereading The King of Ys. The moral of the story: blogging is both endless and unpredictable.
