Gods And Elves

Chicago Integrate is described as "a godland" here and as "an elven forest" here. Gratillonius thinks that Ys should be inhabited by elves or Gods here.

Gods and elves are mythical in Poul Anderson's Technic History but real in his fantasies. However, Nicholas van Rijn from the Technic History visits the inter-univesal inn, the Old Phoenix, where he can meet characters from the fantasies.

    I've regretted that we don't see Old Nick conversing at the Old Phoenix in "House Rule." What would he have talked about?

    And I think Manuel Argos and Dominic Flandry would have been worthy visitors to the Old Phoenix!
