  1. Minor point–it’s World Enough and Time, not World and Time Enough. From Andrew Marvell’s To his Coy Mistress:

    Had we but world enough, and time,
    This coyness, lady, were no crime.

    This poem is also the source of a Le Guin story title, Vaster than empires, and more slow.

  2. Oops! Thanks for the correction, El—it’s right now.

    And thanks for the information about the inspiration for the title!
