I am not atttacking. What is Wolfe saying? Does not Wolfe's fiction accept and transform the "little gods" - and perhaps accept that as the universe ages its greater children will be more and more tempted to this status, and need this redemption? You may find this a threat, but does Wolfe, who is so wise? God might work this way. **really**. In the objective, primary, world. That is what Wolfe is writing about, after all. hartshorn --
