A.J. Demas answered Peg's question: A.J. Demas
I had to look this up on my master chronology, but Something Human takes place six years before Sword Dance, or around the same time that Damiskos became First Spear of his legion in Zash. I don't have plans to write another whole book about Rus and See Full Answer

“In Luth poetry, there was a formula used to indicate a very beautiful woman: you would fall off your horse trying to keep looking at her, as you rode past. That was what the Phemian Adares was like. He had a face like one of the gods painted on the Kossian urns that stood in the summer hall of the kahar- except that unlike them he was always breaking into a smile. And such a smile. You would fall off your horse.”
A.J. Demas, Something Human

“That reminded Rus of Kuth saying the Kossians didn't respect their women. Neither did the Luth, really, when you scratched beneath the surface. You didn't use "womanly" as an insult for men if you truly esteemed women. It made him sad to think about.”
A.J. Demas, Something Human

“I want a reliable, honest man who is not too desperate to be looked after nor too keen on taking care of me, but just a little of both. Those are the things I care about. And if I found a man like that, and he were also the sort of man I would lie awake at night thinking about when he wasn't sharing my bed - then I would know the gods had truly blessed me.”
A.J. Demas, One Night in Boukos
