Oh, absolutely. I mean, if Long Sun/Short Sun isn't designed as a "precursor" to BOTNS in the way I tried to describe, then RttW is pretty inept in places - eg the meeting the young Sev in Nessus thing is just too much like the kind of thing you find in over-extended sci-fi series, once they have reached the flatulent stage. I guess that's one reason why I'm hoping there's more to it ... --
