Es of introductionPart Two is set at least 100 million years into the future that is a geologically future Earth One strain of the ost human galactic brain is Wayfarer who chooses to return to Earth following a deeply buried impulse of Christian s There they encounter Gaia the other strain of The Lady and the Lionheart post human galactic brain It seems Gaia could be concealing some sort ofroject from Wayfarer but they agree to reconstitute a Christian and a Laurinda to investigate within emulated worlds that Gaia has been running At the same time Wayfarer clandestinely reconstitutes an android Brannock onto the real Earth to find out what Gaia is hiding I enjoyed the experimental alternate histories that Christian and Laurinda briefly visit reminiscent of some of Poul s time travel novels but that story line comprises only a s travel novels but that story line comprises only a art of the novel For me that was seriously outweighed by clumsy transitions all the other catch and release characters and extended superlative descriptions of the Galactic BrainIf this is your first dive into Poul Anderson I would sooner recommend some of his earlier works such as The High Crusade Guardians of Time Trader to the Stars or Tau Zero NotesEnjoyed the idea of the book but it was too short to really explore the main themes More of a teaser of "maybes than a fully formed stor.
