  •  Holger gets a cameo in "A Midsummer Tempest" (10+ / 0-)

    Set in a world where Shakespeare is not a playwright but instead the Great Historian, at one point the protagonists Prince Rupert and his companion arrive at The Old Phoenix, the Inn Between the Worlds.

    There they meet Holger Carlsen in the company of Valeria Matuchek. She's coming from her own world line of Operation Chaos as an adult, and has run across Carlsen who has managed to find a way between worlds while trying to return to Alianora. She leaves him to study her mathemagical tools he needs to travel with a bit more direction, and attempts to help Prince Rupert with his own dilemmas.

    Short of writing a full sequel, I've got to give Anderson credit for at least putting Carlsen in a situation where it looks like he stands a chance of getting where he wants to be.

    •  A Night at the Old Phoenix (6+ / 0-)

      Yes, I intended to mention Holger's appearance in A Midsummer's Tempest in the Tip Jar, but I always seem to be rushed for time and I forgot.  Tempest is another of my favorite Anderson books; thanks for bringing it up.
