I wonder...is "Mitigation", the story from Karl Schroeder and Tobias Buckell subtly tied to Buckell's Xenowealth series?
I ask, or just wonder aloud, because there is a mention of the island Anegada being flooded over due to rising sea levels.
The world of Buckell's Crystal Rain? New Anegada.
I know this is the genesis of Buckell doing something different, and that really we're just talking near-future science fiction, and that even if there IS a tie to Xenowealth it is tenuous at best, but...
I just wonder.
Good story, by the way.
