In episode 3, Erikson also mentions that warrens can lead to alternate realities and hints that somewhere in the series a character moves through a warren representing the Battle of the Somme. I'm pretty sure it's this bit from Chapter 24 of The Bonehunters when the Edur are going after the First Throne.


Quote

There were many faces to chaos, to the realm between the realms, and this path they had taken, Taralack Veed reflected, was truly horrific. Defoliated trees rose here and there, broken-fingered branches slowly spinning in the chill, desultory wind, wreaths of smoke drifting across the blasted landscape of mud and, everywhere, corpses. Sheathed in clay, limbs jutting from the ground, huddled forms caked and half-submerged. In the distance was the flash of sorcery, signs of a battle still underway...Up ahead, the Edur warrior Ahlrada Ahn called out a rest, and Taralack Veed sank down against the sloped, sodden wall of a trench, stared down at his legs, which seemed to end just beneath his knees, the rest invisible beneath an opaque pool of water reflecting the grey sludge of sky...The trench they had been trudging along debouched onto a muddy plain, the surface chewed by horse hoofs and cart wheels and the craters of sorcerous detonations. Here, the reek of rotting flesh hung like a mist. Gravestones were visible here and there, pitched askew or broken, and there was splintered wood black with sodden decay and thin white bones amidst the dead still clothed in flesh...Perhaps half a league away ran a ridge, possibly a raised road, and figures were visible there, in a ragged line, marching towards the distant battle, pikes on their backs.

Real quick, what would you ask Erikson & Esslemont if I was to record a conversation with them?

What would they do in their first 100 days as presidents of the world?

I just saw this and I'm so happy you caught that. I was geeked. I do have show notes for this one that I'll probably share when I do the notes for this next one (though I don't think I make the nod that you do in the notes) but when he said that I really had to contain my excitement (especially being Canadian.
