If I were a little less tired, I probably would have noted in my
previous missive that the essay whose interpretation I reported on
(Severian as beneficiary of tweaks to the past) was, to the best of my
memory, published _before_ "The Citadel of the Autarch," where Severian
himself gives a modified version of it in Chapter 38.  Even if it
wasn't, I remember it as a remarkably good essay, though unlike
Severian, my memory isn't perfect...

I'd love to see that essay again.


ps: [Plug] Our very own mantis has an article in the current _New York
Review of SF_ on the "future history" of Jack Vance.  Those who are fans
of TBOTNS but have not yet read Vance (particularly _The Dying Earth_
and its sequels, and _The Dragon Masters_ and its) should do so without
unseemly delay!  He manages to tie the "Demon Princes" books into the
same history as _The Dying Earth_, a feat of mantic virtuosity.
