Question for Mr. Wolfe:

   It's pretty broadly indicated that Silk was gestated from a frozen 
embroyo as Mucor was.   This has some nice symbolic effects ("virgin
birth", the hero as having unusual origins, etc.).  Does Silk have any
human engineered, extraordinary abilities?  

   (Possible Lupine hint:  he knew Hyacinth's name before she was 
introduced, and felt that they had made a non-physical contact.)

   Please pass along my compliments to Mr. Wolfe as one of the most 
creative, skilled, and theologically fascinating writers I've ever read.
