Thanks for the note on "Green Room"--I knew of it because the same
(no doubt derived from the theatrical tradition) is used at
conventions (informal pre-panel prep room for panel participants),
but I still wonder as to the etymology or historical reasons as to
how and why.  (Does anybody know?)

What we have so far certainly deserves mention in "Additions, Errata,
&cetera: volume 3," as well as all the other tidbits slated and a
huge amount about Kardashev Type I, Type II, and Type III (levels of
interstellar civilization); the 20th century science (and subsequent
science fiction) regarding a possibly already dying sun; the text
points of TBOTNS suggesting a black hole in the Sun (this lack in the
LEXICON is shocking); terraforming timelines, stellaforming, and
other relevant notes from Fogg's TERRAFORMING, and so on.

Will there be room for the article on "ProtoS" (the proto-Severian)?
Probably not, but we shall see.
