I debated with the issue endlessly on Psi Phi and there was no way to convince them that footnotes would be as much a turn-off to readers as they thought they'd be useful for others. They wanted either footnotes or a full explanatory list of characters printed in the front of the novel.

You don't even know that there's all that universe-bridging material until you've read through the book; why wouldn't people have wanted, say, an index in the back?
