Crush responds: Sorry, I keep assuming everyone knows more about this stuff than I do. This came from the question and answer period between this list and Wolfe way back when... Q. About how far, really, is the New Sun series set in our future (or the future of the previous universe)? How much time elapses between Typhon and Severian? A. That is never specified in the books. My offhand guess is between 1000 and 2000 years. I would have to reread the books with care to perhaps trim the estimate up a little bit.
