Anybody read Paul J. McAuley's Child of The River (first book of the
Confluence series)? The stylistic and
thematic similarities are so obviously close to Wolfe, it must be some sort
of homage. One major flaw though: McAuley tells us too much. Where Wolfe is
coy and oblique, McAuley rushes in with the solution and the effect in a
lupine setting is slightly jarring. The book is similar in style to tBotNS
while the plot owes more to tBotLS. Worth a read.
