Babbie, I think.

Hmmm...  This listing makes very clear just how much is hinted at but not
answered in OBW.  I think that, by comparison, SHADOW OF THE TORTURER left
a lot less openly hanging threads to tie together.  Most of the major 
mysteries of NEW SUN were suddenly revealed, things we'd never have expected,
doors opened in the walls reshaping our reactions to everything--Vodalus the
Autarch's agent, etc.  If SHORT SUN follows the same path, then given the 
level just of the mysteries we expect to be resolved, we're in for some shocks.
