I'm replying to a number of points at once--a local mail problem resulted in
me getting today in "digest" mode, all arriving in about five seconds.

1.  Wolfe clearly DOES want us to have thoughts about Silk and Horn being 
somehow combined.  The "caught the ball" line is too haunting and explicit for
any other possibility.  What's going on is anybody's guess (Sev./Thecla-ish
with Silk's personality mostly buried, perhaps?)

2.  Seawrack is a human, not a Neighbor.  Her mother drowned and "Mother"
rescued her for (probably) devious purposes.

3.  Dave Lebling summed up the theory I'm supporting as to what the inhumi's
secret is far better than I've managed to thus far.

4.  The neighbors "other place" seems to be something metaphysical or Shadow-
like, not just another planet they've moved to en masse.
