Only cast pearls before swine if a necklace of acorns becomes you (Sayings of Odo). Glimpses into the life of a revolutionary

We're done quite different things with Odo in these stories, with Firerose's Odo being more trickster-ish. I love it! It also more directly references the setting and in particular the economic relationship between Urras and Anarres (which continues all the way into The Dispossessed), and the gender politics of Urras. My story doesn't have Odo meet anyone who isn't associated with either the revolutionary movement or the prison system, which drastically limits the exploration of Iotic society.

So I recommend her fic both for a lovely take on Odo and for a good chunk of world-building/world-exploring too!

Hooray, Hainish Cycle for Yuletide! Thank you [personal profile] firerose for your excellent story.
