Written on 1st April by TC. Bieris - Aimeric's girlfriend, who accompanies him to Nansen. The world of Nou Occitan is based on a romanticized medieval Europe: duels are fought, artistic endeavors are encouraged, and sexism the true face of chivalry is fiercely institutionalized. Plot summary[ edit ] The story begins sometime in the 29th century on the planet Wilson orbiting Arcturus with a young man named Giraut and his romanticswashbuckling friends, who are all members of the Nou Occitan culture and residents in the Quartier de Jovents, a sort of playground for teens and twenty-somethings who have not yet moved on to the more "grown-up" lifestyle of their parents.

Based in Birmingham, Alabama, the company currently operates more than stores in 32 states. Most engrossing, however, are Giraut's evolution from petulant, bratty jovent of Nou Occitan to Caledonic hero, and the creative mishmash of European languages from which Barnes produces the language of Nou Occitan. All the facts and sordid stories are there, but I tend to agree with people who knew Morrison that it was rather sensational and missed Jim's good side.

The clash of cultures when Giraut goes to Caledon is also very credible, and the planet, first presented as dull, is far from it. You try to make it to the border. And this far future story sure did it. Yet, after a lot of pages with this personality, he walks into a room and is John Barnes' "A Million Open Doors" the first in his "Thousand Cultures" series is an interesting book that's a bit uneven.
