Fridge: Safehold

  • One of those things that didn't immediately occur to me until I re-read Off Armageddon Reef. When Merlin gives Cayleb his katana, he tells him it's named Excalibur. The reference is obvious given that Merlin calls himself... well, Merlin. Only on re-reading the first chapters of the book though, did I realize that Excalibur was also the name of the ship Nimue Alban served on, making the name both a mythological reference and a Call Back.
