I agree with Adam.  I believe the 3 BotSS are a beautiful progression of
1. a man in denial finally facing the truth of his death
2. a man who has lost his reason for living finally admitting he is still

Horn knew his body had died on Green.  He seemed to have no confusion about
this, but still did not mention that he had killed Hoof and Hide's father.
Horn even knowing he was in not in his body, still believed himself very
much alive through most of the three books.  It was only when Silk admitted
he was alive and Horn either released himself or Silk released him that he
mentions killing the boys' father.

Thanks for the info on which description of Scylla, Wolfe based his
character on.  The only thing that drew me to the first description was the
"Other accounts say that she was changed into a lark by the gods and her
father into a hawk."
relating to Scylla residing in Oreb.
