Subject: (urth) Castaway


Rich Horton re "Castaway": 

"Do you think the world was actually Earth?  Or was
the castaway remembering lost Earth somehow?"

The world was Earth, I'm pretty sure--in a sense, Urth
post Ragnarok. I think your comparison with Tiptree is
well founded--the theme here is very much alienation
from Mother Earth, only this time with humanity
surviving, Earth dying. Interesting to consider who
the Castaway really is--the shipwreck victim, or the
narrator, and with the narrator, the entire human

--Nick Gevers.
