Fiction has to make sense; fact doesn't. It goes with that old saying "Truth is stranger than fiction."
--Tom Clancy, author (born
April 12, 1947)
P.590 - §1 (52:1.5) The early races also make extensive use
of the larger flying animals. These enormous birds are able to
carry one or two average-sized men for a nonstop flight of
over five hundred miles.
P.861 - §6 (77:5.6) Adamson and Ratta had a family of
sixty-seven children. They gave origin to a great line of the
world's leadership, but they did something more. It should be
remembered that both of these beings were really superhuman.
Every fourth child born to them was of a unique order. It was
often invisible. Never in the world's history had such a thing
occurred. Ratta was greatly perturbed--even superstitious--but
Adamson well knew of the existence of the primary midwayers,
and he concluded that something similar was transpiring before
his eyes. When the second strangely behaving offspring
arrived, he decided to mate them, since one was male and the
other female, and this is the origin of the secondary order of
midwayers. Within one hundred years, before this phenomenon
ceased, almost two thousand were brought into being.
