Just spent ages catching up on the last 15 digests.  Blimey!

Anyhow, just a couple of quick things I couldn't resist:

Not true.  I can't be bothered to look for the ref, but I distinctly
remember Gunnie talking to Sev about the ship and explaining how the put
similar races near to each other, and hints there may be different
atmospheres in the further reaches of the ship for totally 'alien' races.
Remember, only  people from urth get to land on yesod to go and 'judge' Sev.

Now as you know very well Wolfe and Star Trek are NOT mutually exclusive.
The former did write an episode of the latter after all!

And las a question (although I'm sure I don't deserve any favours after
comments like the above).  Is the Clute review available on the web
anywhere, or could anyone email me a copy?
