You sly dog! Well, I was very taken with the notion that Severian brings 
Silk back. I'll look forward to how you set out the whole matter. Until 
then, I continue to think that the narrator's consciousness is Horn, though 
since he is in the biological body of Silk, with Silk's physical brain, 
etc., he cannot escape acting more Silkishly than he did when he was Horn 
in Horn's body. That is, until the encounter with Sev.
         Looking forward to it.
