Jan 29, 2014 - Okal Rel Quote from Part 8: Gathering Storm, by Lynda Williams

Okal Rel science fiction books - culture shock in the Reetion medical clinic at the cultural exchange

Writer-daughter Jennifer Lott's 2013 Xmas gift to Lynda Williams was an Okal Rel quote of the day stack for 2014, featuring intriguing snapshots of the ORU adventure from all titles in the series: Saga, Legacies and online.

From saga novel Gathering Storm by Lynda Williams.

Ilse's name was called in a neutral voice emanating from a blue triangle that had appeared in front of her face.

She started, hand going to her sword hilt. The next moment, every Reetion in the waiting room was on his or her feet giving advice.

"It's only a stage focus," said one man, coming so close to Ilse that she backed away.

"Not an arbiter!" soothed a woman.

"The whole ceiling and floor is a stage, so the foci can move to direct people," another Reetion was explaining.

Ilse squelched the urge to flatten the lot of them bare handed only because she suspected they would find it exciting.

Commentary

Even well-meaning Reetions can still give off the "ministering to primitives" vibe that gets up the nose of sophisticated empire Sevolites like Ilse.
