How far in the future do the Edge books take place?
It says in the series prologue that it’s about 100 years after the end of the Storms – give or take a few decades, since no one was really keeping track. But the Storms that changed the sea level and wiped out cities and states and regions, changing the shapes of whole continents, went on for a long, long time. For example, there might have been significant advances in science and technology before Mother Nature pretty much slapped it all down. The distant past of the Edge world is still very far in our future.
