Topic: Question about very ending of Anvil of Stars

Hi Greg. I just finished reading Anvil of Stars, and Forge of God before that, and they are amazing books. I love what you've done with them and how you wrote them. It was an amazing experience and they're definitely on my top ten favorite books. Anyway, I was just wondering about the last perspective of Anvil of Stars, which is Six/Eye on Sky. At the very end, after he is done with his perspective, it says:

Alderwood Manor, Washington
August 30, 1991

I was wondering what the significance of that was? It's probably very simple and I'm probably just too dumb to figure it out. But I was just wondering.
Thanks! :)

That's the community where the book was written, on planet Earth... which still exists! Thanks for the kind words, Gabe.

Hi:

I was wondering the same thing. I read an electronic version of the book and I couldn't tell if those two lines were the author's or if they related to the braids.

If I am reading the above correctly then. It's just where and when the book was written and does not have anything to do with the content of the book?

Yup. Alderwood Manor is now called Lynnwood.
