The Gathering Edge – Chapter 23

Aubernet System

In which Bechimo arrives in a new place.

Lots of technical details in this chapter, which is impresive but not the kind of thing I personally find most entertaining to read or talk about.

I note the way the authors found an excuse to mention Rig Tranza and Primadonna a few pages before Primadonna reappears in the story. (And a few chapters before, as well, since they were also in Clarence’s story to the pathfinders.)

The presence of Scouts means that Win Ton may be called on to resolve the divide between his loyalty and his duty.

    I noted the beforehand references to Primadonna and RigTranza, too. There are also some fairly overt references to the title, “the gathering edge” (have you noted any yet?)

    Noticed on this re-read: Tucked into the summary of Aubernet’s trading prospects is a mention of the current status of the trade-route disruption Arin’s Envidaria was concerned with.
