Subject: (urth) 7 early stories

Adam Stephanides asked about some stories.  I'll quote Joan Gordon by way
of reply, adding a little:

>Mountains Like Mice
"Wolfe's first published science-fiction story, this is an initiation story
showing his characteristic interest in myth."

Hmmm.  It has something of the feel of "`A Story' by John V. Marsch."  It
is set on a terraformed Mars, iirc.

>Screen Test
"A non-science-fiction mystery story based on false assumptions."

It is a Chinese screen.  Art object, not motion-picture initiation.

"A straight mystery story"

A lake in the woods. Rape, murder, guns.  And a Volkswagon, of course.

>The Green Wall Said
"Crossed communications and the value of humanity."

Hmmm.  A "Hollywood bowl" type dingus writes out a message from the stars,
fragment by fragment.

>It's Very Clean
"Who is real and who is not, in the sexual arena."

>Thou Spark of Blood
"A spaceship murder with allusions to _Macbeth_."

>King under the Mountain.
"A personal relationship between a man and a computer."

The computer is deep underground.
