The fascinating exchange between Alex and Roy has clarified a separate
recent thread for me - whether UOTNS is somehow extraneous. I'm more
convinced than ever that the answer is No. UOTNS exists precisely (in part)
to rub our noses in the _costs_ of bringing the New Sun. You can say, Yeah
it's all implied in the four books, particularly in Dr. Talos's play, to
which I'd say that "implied" comes a good bit short of the experience of
being shown, as we are in Urth, and who would trust that little weasel
anyhow? You could even say that your fine inferrals from the first series
have the emotional force of encountering the line "Nessus drowned two days
ago," but I'd suspect you were putting at least one of us on.

Note that "you" is the impersonal pronoun and should not be used as the
basis of any actual cash wager. Consult your doctor.
