My reaction to "Pajarocu" is that it sounded a lot like words from
indigenous tribes from the Amazon. To be specific, it brought to mind
"pirarucu", a large fish which is one of the staple foods of the
region. It's sufficiently well known that I learned about it in elementary
school in southern Brazil...

I've been lurking on the conversation, so, now that I've started talking
again, perhaps I should say that I too am rather amazed at
"Blue"... Wolfe's books just seem to get more and more complex, more and
more artful, more and more entrancing.

dance with the cows till you come home.
