Here are a few Wolfe FAQs which have nothing to do with BotNS and one which
does but isn't *about* BotNS: 

"What's up with Dennis Weer?"
"Which egg contained the hallucinogen?"
"What became of John V. Marsh? And what does VRT stand for?"
"How is the _Long Sun_ related to the _New Sun_?"
"What is a memory palace?"
"Where should I start reading Wolfe?"
"What Wolfe short story collections are there?" 
"What is Cheap Street? What other small-press Wolfe am I missing?"
"Did Gene Wolfe really invent Pringles?"

I agree that the most Frequently Asked Questions are about _BotNS_, because
it's the largest, densest(*), and most-read of Wolfe' works. But it's
hardly the only work about which the same questions come up again and again. 

(*)Actually, I think that _Peace_ might be denser.
