More Carp

One more trivial observation related to Avatar: The nervous system linking between species (USB hairbraid according to some snarker in Indianapolis) is very similar to a plot device in an excellent swashbuckling technofantasy from the mid-80s, Threshold, by David R. Palmer.

Threshold and Palmer’s previous novel, Emergence, are both worth the time to find them.
