One of the things I really should have done when I started all this is come up with a name for the future universe that Requite exists in, which also contains the FSSI and KinSpace and the Bind and other remnants of the Solannan Imperity and pre-Solannan colonisation. I can’t keep saying ‘A Requite Novel’ when I know that future books are going to mostly be set off Requite, if they visit it at all. (Yes, there will be a ‘rescue Idrian and Bel-Imperia and Zax I suppose’ novel, it’s in the planning process)
‘Requitiverse’ is what I call it in my head but I can’t see it on a book cover. I considered ‘Sapient Universe’ because of all the A-saps and O-saps and so on about the place, but it sounds as if I’m saying the actual universe is sapient, which is something that both I and the inhabitants of the books are agnostic on.
‘Solannaverse’ is probably the best of a bad bunch, but I have to admit that I’m kind of partial to Grueniverse…

You’re genetically tweaked.
Very genetically tweaked.
You’ve been eaten by a grue.
Maybe I should have just written the whole thing from the grues’ perspective in the first place. 🙂
“Solannaverse” is probably the most salable, but “Grueniverse” would make ME pick up a book, if I saw it on the cover…
“They’re shiny, they’re blue-ny, they’re all a little grue-ny,
And in this book-or-two-ny, they’re INVADING YOUR UNIVERSE”
I like ‘Grueniverse’ – though it does looks slightly as if someone’s misspelled ‘Guinevere’.
Don’t tempt me to write alternate versions of Arthurian Legend where Guinevere is a grue…

“Er… my…. um, probably lady… I would love to… but first, how do I rescue you from this tower? You seem to be, um, entirely surrounding and covering it… and do you have any idea where Galahad has got to?”
