If I recall, when we discusses long sun the question of the literary
purpose of the long drawn-out description of the mechancial engineering
process of talus production came up.  Horn's new book at least gives us a
fuller explanation of this than "Wolfe is an engineer by trade". Horn
alludes to his purposes in making the Book of Silk have a utilitarian
function for those on the short sun who may need some of the long sun

elated, disillusioned, shocked, comforted, and I    |                 --|--
have to transmit my mental experiences lest I die." |                 + | +
