Carl And Manse
Unattached agent Manson Everard interviews Specialist Carl Farness in 1980, pp. 384-391.
Manse uses a homelier version of the metaphor:
"'Operatives must have discretion, or they'd never get their jobs done, and plenty of them have sailed closer to the wind than you did.'" (pp. 385-386)
He claims to have:
"'...kicked around history, prehistory and even posthistory, quite a lot.'" (p. 386)
We know that there is a "posthistory," the Danellian Era, but also thought that Patrol agents did not visit it and would like to know more about Manse's experiences then.
This is where Carl refers to "...the guardian branch of the Patrol..." (p. 389)
Thus, the word "guardian" is used not only in a title, The Guardians Of Time, but also in Patrol terminology.
We learn five names of a single deity:
west German Wotan;
Scandinavian Odin. (p. 389)
There will be a post about Carl's mission 300-372.
