This is true, and I do indeed want to read the Long Sun now I've started on
the Short Sun; but the other point I'd make is that 'On Blue's Waters' is a
beautiful novel in its own right, and reading it without any other knowledge
of 'Urth' wasn't detrimental (for me, at least). The quality of OBW as a
really marvellous work of literature, in its own right, shone through, and
it never felt incomplete, as a novel. If that makes sense... And this, I
think, is what was at the heart of my devil's advocacy :o)
