Then, responding to some new development on the distant planet, audiences would again increase. People came like pilgrms. Helliconia was Earth's last great art form. NObody on Earth, from its rulers to its sweepers, was unfamiliar with aspects of Helliconian life. The names of Aoz Roon, Shay Tal, Vry, and Laintal Ay were on everyone's lips. Since terrestrial gods died, new figures had arrived to take their place. " [More.]
media world 5000 Aldiss, Brian. Helliconia Spring. New York: Atheneum (1982); pg. 353. "This incident was witnessed from the Earth Observation Station and, a thousand years later, bythose who came on sandalled feet to the great auditoria on Earth. Those auditoria were fuller now than they had been at any time over the last century. People who went to view that enormous electronic recreation of a reality that had not been real for many centuries were wishing in their hearts that the humans whose lives they had followed would survive--always using the future tense, which comes naturally to homo sapiens, even for such events as this, so long past. "

THe Helliconian Institute's receiver was situated on Pluto's moon, Charon, on the extreme margins of the solar system. Much of its financial support came from its Eductainment Channel, through which a continuous saga of Helliconian events was beamed to audiences on Earth and the other solar planets.

Their peaked domes aspired towards the skies from which the Eductainment Channel was beamed. "

"He wore homespun trousers and sturdy hand-pegged boots, covered thick in dust, and a shirt of coarse-loomed cotton with a narrow neckband and no collar. His hair was a light brown, cut off square above the shoulders and again above the eyes, and on his head he wore a brown flat-crowned hat with a wide brim.

Len's people were New Mennonites, and they wore brown hats to distinguish themselves from the original Old Mennonites, who wore black ones. Back in the Twentieth Century, only two generations before, there had been just Old Mennonites and Amish, and only a few tens of thousands of them, and they had been regarded as quaint and queer because they held to the old simple handcraft ways and would have no part of cities or machines. But when the cities ended, and men fond that in the changed world these of all folk were best fitted to survive, the Mennonites had swiftly multiplied into the millions they now counted. " [Many refs. throughout novel, not all in DB.]

"They went in and looked at the horses, talking wisely of withers and cannon bones but keeping out o the way of the men who stood in small groups in front of this stall and that, with slow words and very quick eyes.

"
Mennonite USA 2010 Brackett, Leigh. The Long Tomorrow. New York: Ballantine (1974); pg. 13. "He hear a light cart go with a break and a rattle, and way off somewhere a heavy wagon groaned on its way, the team snorting as they pulled. The strange people, the non-Mennonites like the gingery trader in his buckskin clothes, had all left just after sundown... "
Mennonite USA 2010 Brackett, Leigh. The Long Tomorrow. New York: Ballantine (1974); pg. 30. "'...Oh, I know! All my life I've had to watch my tongue. I can remember the world the way it was before.

Mennonite USA 2010 Brackett, Leigh. The Long Tomorrow. New York: Ballantine (1974); pg. 32. "'...And only those who had always lived without all the luxuries, and done for themselves with their own hands, and had no truck with the cities, came through without hurt and led us all in the path of peace and plenty and humility before God.

'I had provocation,' said Pa, and stood breathing hard through his nose for a minute or two. Then, more quietly, he said to Len, 'Go to the barn.'

Len's heart sank down to his knees. He began to shuffle away across the yard. Ma came clear out the door, onto the stoop.

'Elijah, the Sabbath day is no time--'

'It's for the good of the boy's soul,' said Pa, in the voice that meant no more argument. 'Just leave this to me, please.' "

Mennonite USA 2010 Brackett, Leigh. The Long Tomorrow. New York: Ballantine (1974); pg. 78. "The New Mennonites frowned on the use of any artificial power, but the riverboat men belonged to different sects and had different problems. "
Mennonite USA 2010 Brackett, Leigh. The Long Tomorrow. New York: Ballantine (1974); pg. 79. "There were few Amish or Mennonites in Refuge. The people mostly belonged to the Church of Holy Thankfulness, and were called Kellerites after the James P. Keller who founded the sect. Len and Esau had found that there were few Mennonites anywhere in the settlements that lived by commerce rather than by agriculture. And since they were excommunicate themselves, with no wish to be traced back to Piper's Run, they had long ago discarded the distinctive dress of their childhood faith for the nondescript homespuns of the river towns. They wore their hair short and their chins naked, because it was the custom among the Kellerites for a man to remain clean-shaven until he married, when he was expected to grow the beard that distinguished him more plainly than any removable ring. They went every Sunday to the Church of Holy Thankfulness, and joined in the regular daily devotions of the family they boarded with... "
Mennonite USA 2010 Brackett, Leigh. The Long Tomorrow. New York: Ballantine (1974); pg. 86. "'I haven't told any lies.'

'That isn't always necessary. Anyway, I can pretty well guess. You're a country boy. I would lay odds that you were New Mennonite. And you ran away from home. Why?'

'I guess,' said Len, choosing his words as a man on the edge of a pitfall chooses his steps, 'that it was because Pa and me couldn't agree on how much was right for me to know.'

'Thus far,' said Taylor thoughtfully, 'and no farther. That has always been a difficult line to draw. Each sect must decide for itself, and to a certain degree, so must every man. Have you found your limit, Len?'

'Not yet.'

'Find it,' Taylor said, 'before you go too far.' "

Mennonite USA 2010 Brackett, Leigh. The Long Tomorrow. New York: Ballantine (1974); pg. 88. "He thought of Brother James, who by now must be the father of several small Mennonites, and he wondered whether, on the whole, Refuge was very different from Piper's Run... "
Mennonite USA 2010 Brackett, Leigh. The Long Tomorrow. New York: Ballantine (1974); pg. 98. "The area was quiet not, for no business was done on the Sabbath, and the men were sitting and talking in the shade, or off somewhere to afternoon prayer meeting. Len knew most of them at least by sight, and they knew him. He joined them, glad of some talk to get his mind off his problems for a while. Some of them were New Mennonites. Len always felt shy around them, and a little unhappy, because they brought back to him many things he would just as soon not think about. He had never let on that he had once been one of them.

...He asked if he could stay.

'Of course, and welcome,' said a New Mennonite named Fisher. 'Tell you what, Len, if you was to go and get some more wood off the big pile it would help.' "

Mennonite USA 2010 Brackett, Leigh. The Long Tomorrow. New York: Ballantine (1974); pg. 5-6. "'Women,' whispered Len. He shut his eyes, and behind the lids were the pictures of wild preachings such as a New Mennonite never heard, of great smoking fires and vague frenzies and a figure, much resembling Ma in her bonnet and voluminous homespun skirts, lying on the ground and kicking like Baby Esther having a tantrum. "

"'I have it from a reliable source that your current work-in-progress, Dillinger Didn't Die, is based on a remarkably similar idea. In fact, your protagonist, the ancient bank robber, escapes from the FBI... of the twentieth century, by magically turning into a woman. He does this by getting his moll, I mean, his woman lover, Billie Frechette, an Indian of the Wisconsin Menominee tribe, to take him to the tabu abode of Wabrosso, the Great White Hare, the Menominee Trickster. This creature of ancient Indian legend and folk tale gives Dillinger the power to turn into a woman at an appropriate time...' "
