It seems to me that if Wolfe is going to play around with Graves's concepts and imagery _anywhere_ it would be in a story about ancient Greece, neh? ... perhaps this is an invocation/citation/statement of the all-female, the one- three Goddess ... in which case the Sphinx being Echidna's daughter doesn't prevent her from being Hera's, since both Hera and Echidna are the Mother ... I think it's time for me to reread these; it's going to be a bit of a wait for Wizard-Knight anyway. --Blattid _________________________________________________________________ Add photos to your e-mail with MSN 8.
