I will take into consideration your views on Athaspace, but for now, I'm
reading (as I type this) Static's "Chronicles of the Eternal Wanderer"
series (Static: I *LOVE* these stories, please, keep 'em coming!!!) and I'm
on the one where the Baine Marie goes to Athaspace.  I don't know exactly
what'll happen (I juststarted reading it), but it seems good so far.
