Ideas Sparking Off Each Other
when I started to list philosophical issues in Poul Anderson's works, I did not expect such a long list;
when I asked here whether the Technic History and the Time Patrol could coexist in the multiverse, I did not expect to find a neat piece of evidence involving van Rijn and Holmes;
when I identified two directions for futuristic sf, I did not expect one collection, Maurai And Kith, to exemplify both;
when I listed references to "Starkad," I did not expect the list to form an impressive sequence;
when I thought about money, I did not expect to find a neat example of van Rijn continuing to enrich himself by a small price increase;
when I contemplated "England," I did not expect to find so many apposite quotations.
I never know what is coming next on the blog.
