Hey everybody, look--it's Dr. Nick Gevers.


Author of that fine essay in "Nova Express."

<applause, cheers>

And he has just given away the major surprise of THE BOOK OF THE
SHORT SUN, seven months before the first book will be published <g>!


No, no, put down those pitchforks and torches--I'm only joking.


Joking about the next series--I mean, I don't know anything about the
next series, I certainly don't know as much as the publishers know.

But what Nick Gevers writes seems quite likely to be true.  The human
"boatpeople" and the native-alien "bat people."  Thoughts of
interstellar colonization, with sinister effects, turns my mind
toward the Hainish books of Le Guin: THE WORD FOR WORLD IS FOREST
being a case where the humans are being very, very naughty; PLANET OF
EXILE being an example where the human enclave is in danger of being
wiped out by alien-native Mongol-types, and thus deserving of
sympathy (sympathy for humans, that is).
