Anyone have something to confirm this?

It's interesting that the 'divergent futures' idea often posits an
infinite number of posibilies, sometimes of varying probability: Asimov's
psychohistory; Herbert's prescience,  etc etc.  Because of this perhaps a
reader might assume an 'anything possible' future.  But as far as I can
recall we are only shown 2 posibilities: Ashe's Ice and the Green Man's
fecund world.  The New Sun doesn't/does come.  A duality:  very Lupine.
