The Wind Whales of Ishmael
Farmer borrows another character from literature. This time it is Ishmael from Melville's Moby Dick
who suddenly finds himself in the far distant future. There are no seas but there are ships and there
are whales, both just happen to be flying instead of sailing or swimming.
