It happened to me.   On my first reading of 5HC as a young twentysomething I
thought if a fine bit of writing but rather confused,  fragmentary plotwise.
The depths bypassed me entirely.    It was not until I met other readers
that the book was opened up for me.

Mea cupla, mea maxima culpa: but it was Wolfe taught me that SF books
*could* be like that.   Scratch that, it was Wolfe who taught me *books*
could be like that.
