Subject: Re: (urth) Quetzal On Urth? Hello again. Just replying to my own message here. Yesterday I asked if anybody had a transcript of the Gene Wolfe People Online transcript, and Roy Lackey was kind enough to e-mail it to me. (Thanks, Roy!) Here's a quote of interest from that transcript for everybody that's been following this Quetzal-on-Urth discussion: Question: In the Long Sun books, is Quetzal the only one of his kind on the Whorl? Was he an original passenger or a late arrival? Gene Wolfe: He was a late arrival. He is not the only one of his kind, but the Inhumi are rare on the Whorl. I still believe it to be relatively clear from the text that Quetzal is a late boarder, but maybe this will convince some of the doubters. Crush, don't you have to give in now? Or do you believe Gene Wolfe to be so sadistic as to outright lie about his own books? Charles --
