Thank you, Kathryn, I'm happy that you like the newest additions! I include the androgynous style to represent the blurred boundaries between the genders (and admittedly, it sometimes finds its way into the drawings on an almost unconscious level, as androgyny--in more than one form--comes to mind w...

My thanks once again for your in-depth response, Athena! Aside from the emotional content, the other elements you bring up here play a large part in the compositions. Where the two depicting Tanegir Soran-Keris are concerned, the androgyny is also integral to the female figure to me, and I'm glad to...

These are great points, and they remind me as well that the artistic styles you mention here (particularly pre-Raphaelite, which is one of my favorites) preceded science fiction and fantasy art in its modern forms. That aside, I'll have to take a closer look at the works of the artists named in this...

Thank you for your wonderful feedback, dear Marie! I'm glad that you enjoy the new images. Again, the weighty emotional content was foremost in my thoughts, especially now that the threads of the narrative are coming together into an even clearer picture.

Dear Athena, my thanks for your lovely comments; as ever, I'm happy to know that the depictions do the emotional depth of the story justice, along with other elements.

Athena, Eloise, Kathryn, Marie, the same goes for your avatars! Also, there are five new additions to the galleries; the first two were sparked by a line in Chapter Two of Shoals in Time that begins with the words: "If Adh'isa were a woman...." and the latter three depict scenes in a few o...

Fitting that you should mention that now--I'm actually in the middle of the Kushiel's Trilogy! :) Along with the engaging elements you've mentioned in your post, I'm finding myself increasingly drawn in by the human factors of this epic, particularly the hard-won personal growth and wisdom that come...

No truer words, and I agree with you both; history and experience do provide foundations to fiction like few (if any) other elements can. Many thanks for the recs. :)

Brilliant conclusion to a gripping series of essays. :) In setting aside technological influences (which are highly significant in and of themselves) this last installment appropriately underscores the consequences of close-mindedness and the catastrophic results of using violence as the means to ac...

Took me long enough to finally give this one a properly thorough read...but in any instance, this is very interesting! The comparison of advanced civilizations observing and interacting with those that are far behind them--so to speak--to the Europeans arriving in North America is all too appropriat...
