    whoops! good thing you published this list, I almost proceeded directly to Kalimpura from Green…so Endurance is waiting in the library for me right now!

  2. Just read Hook Agonistes, and I thought it was a great story, with a lot of beauty, depth, and layers.


    Like a lot of great stories, I was left with several questions that I wish had answers, like:

    Was Hook’s name (i.e. “Jas”) meant to be a clue about his dual nature? (I noticed at the end that his name was James minus the “Me”.)

    What was the other Hook reprogramming Mr Grin to do, exactly? Was it just meant to be something that would distract Jas enough to let Hook take control?

    Was Pan’s birth really a virgin birth? My first guess would be that somehow Hook had something to do with it, but if so I can’t see how he had the biomedical knowledge necessary to implant an embryo in Anniehall (I didn’t get the sense from the quoted Lowryland protocols that the Enhanced Entertainers were programmed with that level of advanced knowledge), and I can’t see how he had the resources necessary to perform such an operation.

    What led Hook to suspect that the destruction of Earth was a ruse created by the Taushin?

    Anyway, a bit late with this, so I guess I don’t really expect answers, but hey, the story got my mind a-wondering.

      Hah! Good questions. I have always felt very strongly that the story text should stand on its own. As I once said in a similar context, I don’t come to your house and explain the story when you’ve read it.

      Besides, a little mystery is a good thing in life. 🙂

      1. Sigh. A reader can hope. Didn’t hurt to ask… 🙂
