Default Re: Writing Process

Well, The Dark Crystal got away with three suns. ("When single shines the triple suns" and all that.) Why not some other planet/reality/plane of existence with three suns? Maybe the suns are farther away than our own Sol, and thus do less damage from that distance.

Tara K. Harper's "Wolfwalker" novels take place on a world with eight moons; maybe they were small moons, or at least far enough away to not cause much damage to the tides.

Physics like that can be pulled off in fantasy. Writers just have to be careful how they do it, right?
