I don't have the books handy, but I have a vague recollection that Ymar 
doesn't get distinguished as the *first* Autarch until UOTNS. (Or no?) If 
that's right, then I think this is just another place in which UOTNS is a 
new story, "based on" but not exactly a direct extension of, or intended to 
be totally consistent with New Sun.
