Sounds very subtle [In reply to] Can't Post

But then, Tolkien's conceit that his writing is only a translation from other languages is also subtle and complex.

I haven't read Stephenson, so can only raise a brow at "the world of Arbre". I suppose the fact that "arbre" is "tree" in French ties in with a lot of tree mythology?
