It's funny that you have that theory because I wondered that exact same thing! The way that citizens of each city are trained to ignore the citizens and parts of the other, and it seems like pieces of each city are adjacent to one another but, if I remember right, no part of one city takes up the same space as the other.

For instance I don't remember anyone mentioning a building that was in Besźel and was in the same spacial location as a different building in Ul Qoma. So it very well could be a situation of "cultural delusion" which would explain why the process to visit is so strenuous, because they have to impress that delusion onto the foreigners.

But like you said, I want to read it again through that lens to see if it holds up.

No I haven't heard of Unholy Land by Lavie Tidhar, I'll have to add it to my ever growing reading wish-list lol

All citizens of Cézembre have just received by e-mail an invitation from Sovereign Province of Czembre to vote through electionbuddy /

You can either vote below in the thread or vote with the ballot you will receive by mail. If you vote both ways, the vote from electionbuddy will be the vote which will be taken into account.

Yeah, that one is great. I have a theory that I've been wanting to run by someone. It isn't fully formed and I've never actually reread the book to check for holes. I think maybe the "strange physics" ascribed to Besźel and Ul Qoma doesn't actually exist but that people (residents, foreigners, and even Breach) act like, and mostly genuinely believe, they do. What do you think?

By the way, have you read Unholy Land by Lavie Tidhar? It was published several years after The City & the City and, while not that much alike, makes similar use of the word "crosshatch."

Quote from: Iason Taiwos on May 12, 2024, 07:57:28 PMIs there a way to make Fora Talossa's videos more up to date? This weather report was from awhile back. We had tornadoes in my area the other night, and I probably could have recorded a live, but crude video of the proceedings. (Not in Talossa proper, but don't the catchment areas deserve some love?)

Were you being serious here, Iason? I assumed you were joking because Fora Talossa is not a live news channel.
Perhaps someday...

For those who think they may not like science fiction this blends mystery with sci-fi for something that is gently different. Just finished the first season in one big juant.

I feel that having a dictionary on hand might be helpful though.
