I am somewhat in favor of just one list, but I can understand your reasons
for a distinct Whorl list for archival purposes. How about two, for the
Whorl and one for all else. It stands to reason that those of us who have
found our way here (there aren't *that* many of us) are pretty well
acquainted with the oeuvre and would like to be able to segue.

I'm the only lady in our discussion, and I thought it was adequate on a YA
level, no more. Not as appalling as Heinlein similar efforts.

Do you have this from the Wolfe's mouth?  If you don't, I'll beg to differ
with you. In my opinion,  Nessus is, in a general way, Alexandria. Will
back this up if you don't    have the tap from the source---otherwise, of
course, will concede.
