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.
