If not, what happened to them? 2) Iirc, the Writings were a melange of quotes from a variety of sources; James Jordan mentioned "Marcus Aurelius in the Chrasmological writings From Gene Wolfe's interview by Nick Gevers: NG: The scriptures employed by the augurs of the Whorl -- the Chrasmologic Writings -- of what are these meant to consist? Are they a melange of Biblical and classical quotations (for example, from Marcus Aurelius), plus later accretions, or are they more definitely structured than that? GW: A melange, as you say. Typhon [the tyrannical builder and chief "god" of the Whorl] has told some secretary to put together a sacred book that will leave him plenty of elbow room. The book is sacred to Silk, not to me. --- Crush --
