At that point, the answer really could have been "No, maybe it 
wouldn't actually", imo.

When, on reading the books, it became apparent, my reaction wasn't 
that delightful feeling of opening up of possibilities and of 
ideational space, but more a wary sinking feeling. I was slightly 
mollified by the clever stuff that turned up on revisiting Urth, but 
even so I feel it would probably have been more conceptually 
satisfactory to have kept the worldspaces separate.

But is that just me? Do the rest of you feel that it all ties 
together brilliantly?
