[writing] The miracle of names

Working on Escapement, I have just changed the name of one of the airships in this book from Borborygmus to Notus. A sad day, for I liked the rumbling malice of Borborygmus as the name of an aerial ship of war, but others did not find that monicker such a gas as I did. Not everyone has the stomach for this kind of humor.
