socially stratified Hermes;
Avalon shared by human beings and Ythrians;
Serbic Dennitza with its Merseian minority.
It occurs to me that colonialism is a theme common to all (?) of SM Stirling's alternative histories:
the Angrezi Raj;
the Commonwealth of New Virginia;
the Domination of the Draka;
a temporally displaced geographical area? (I have not read any volumes of that series yet.)
We need not fear that the author favors Draka oppression. Our viewpoint character, Eric, is a member of the master race but all too aware of the injustices surrounding him. I will continue to read his adventures with interest.
