Subject: (urth) whorl in orbit Date: Mon, 18 Nov 2002 23:24:01 -0800 Against the "Whorl has been in orbit for thirty years" possibly in the text and possibly said by Wolfe in an interview I lay down my "longfather, culture hero of Ushas who left for the stars" entry in Lexicon Urthus p.184 - 185. And I would argue most vehemently that nothing is straightforward enough in these texts to draw any definitive conclusions. Heck, for all I know, this is some elaborate joke by Wolfe, and the real narrator of the whole 12 book series is L. Ron Hubbard. Don --
