mantis' latest insight snipped.

This fits in nicely with the possible setting of Den's narration in
the far future.  Not only can the figure listening to Hannah's story
be the reader, but the lich that dead Den and dead Gold are summoning
is the long-dead reader.  ENGINE SUMMER is an excellent
comparison--however, again, I think that Den is NOT one of Wolfe's
damned and trapped narrators (Number Five, etc.), while ENGINE SUMMER
has a profound atmosphere of imprisonment, in my mind.
