I guess you missed the first post on this topic. Yes she was called
after that Cirocco (pronounced Shurocco), she suited the meaning
too, a hot desert wind, as she was tortie and white with flaming
orange patches. I was very into Varley at the time. I fell out with
him after reading the story "Press Enter". Unfortunately what I
found to dislike in that story (a certain emotional manipulativeness)
seemed to pervade the rest of the work too and I haven't really
enjoyed his work since. Still with the exception of Steel beach,
which I hated, I 've still got all the books so I may have another look
You are trapped in that bright moment where you learned your doom.
