Oooo!  A tricky question.  How much do details from the Long Sun "count"
in interpreting the New Sun books?  Somehow I feel that's cheating.

On the other hand, I don't feel that way at all about the Short Sun & Long
Sun books, I guess because it feels like it's going to really be all one

As for rumors that Severian may be involved somehow in the Short Sun
books, I am prejudiced against the idea.  The Typhon bit works because
it's such a minor connection.   But the feel of these two series is so
different, I have trouble imagining them being brought together without
one seeming out of place.  (I haven't read _Blue_ yet, so I can't say
anything about the 'feel' of that book.)
