<scratch head> As I recall it, the punchline of <Strata> was that our universe is artificial. (Unless the people in the story are the culture that built our universe, in which case the punchline is that *their* home universe is artificial.) I don't remember anything particularly flat about it. <disclaimer> I did read it nigh on twenty years ago. -- Anton Sherwood --
