Subject: (urth) DOORS: what city, please?

Hey Roy! (And everybody else.)

What you think -- is the city of TAD the same city as the one in FLF?

The city in TAD is:

-- On the eastern seaboard.

-- Far enough north that there is ice in the harbor (at least in
Otherworld, iirc).

-- Is the nation's capital in Otherworld but not in Visitor's World.

 . . . all pretty trace.

But when Doctor Nilson of Visitor's World says "Last winter there was a
blackout," it reminded me of the winter blackout in FLF (which was pivotal
to that story).

On a similar tangent, North seems to have been in Otherworld for 10 to 16
years of Visitor's World time: that is, he seems to have gone there circa
1972, and it is 1982-88 (break-up of Ma Bell and year of publication.  So
how many O-days is that?  We are told that 4 O-days = 33 days (hc p. 171),
hmmm, so each O-day is 8.25 days long.  Ten years would be 443 O-days; 16
years would be 708 O-days.
