Subject: RE: (urth) Latro, where are you? Date: Mon, 20 Jan 2003 07:11:57 -0600 Does anyone have any information about the Latro series? It seems that Wolfe left many hints in "Arete" that the story of Latro is to be continued. And we still haven't figured out what he was doing [Soldier Series spoilers to continue...] Crush responds: Well, since Latro hasn't gotten home to Italy (as Apollo suggested he would), the story can be said to not be complete. However, since in Arete, Latro fulfills Artemis' requirements of him and receives his requested reward (to be reunited with his friends), the Soldier novels could not be considered **brutally** unfinished. I thought it was apparent that Wolfe intended more than **one** extra novel. I interpreted Apollo's prophecy to mean that after Jerusalem Wolfe intended his hero to go to South America before he got back home. I **presumed** he was to go to India on the way and North America, Scandinavia, and Britain on the way back. Wolfe is a septuagenarian; I doubt we're going to see the series completed as it was originally envisioned. -- Crush --
