Is there an archive on this? I'm currently reading the collection 'The
Island of Doctor Death and Other Stories and Other Stories', and have read
the title story, and most of 'Alien Stones'. Both have really intrigued me,
but the first one particularly, because Wolfe (as one would expect) leaves
so many questions unanswered, and leaves the reader asking so many

I always find it difficult /not/ to read into Wolfe, because he is one of
these writers who, in his style of story-telling, invites the reader to
rummage around between the lines. However, I don't know how much of 'The
Island of Doctor Death and Other Stories' I have deciphered, or, in fact, if
there is anything to 'decipher'; it may simply be that we are supposed to be
left wondering and remembering.
