	Hope you're right. To be honest, the business of Severian's showing up in
the current series has always struck me as kind of hokey, and it will
require Wolfe at his best to convince me. Of course, I know he will, and
I'll be happy.
	I keep thinking that we've really got two huge trilogies going here. The
first consists of TBNS and TUNS, which leaves the story of Severian
hanging, and projects a third book (book series) left to go. And now it
appears that the current trilogy is going to leave us hanging, as Horn
seems to be left hanging, which might project a third and final set of
books to round out the Silk story.
	Oh, stupid me! Scratch that. I was thinking that OBW was written by
someone at the end of his own journey, but the next two volumes will carry
the total story forward, and perhaps round things out fully.
	But I'm not counting on it. Since when has Wolfe ever left us feeling that
it's all been told? 
	(He'd better not die anytime soon).
