I haven't read that one yet :o)

I don't mind about Spoilers. Thankfully ;o)

re: delusions - I don't think that /is/ an answer, or plausible reading, but
it struck me as being one way to explain what is going on...

Personally, I've got no idea how to read it - the most plausible reading
seems to be that we're supposed to be left clueless. A reading which can be
applied to many of Wolfe's stories.
