The miracle of Apu-Punchau was an eclipse. Or a supposed eclipse; actually,
as Wolfe makes (almost) clear in his afterword, it was the very large
starship Sanru passing across the sun. This "miracle" echoes the one in Mark
Twain's A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court--which was a genuine
eclipse. Wolfe is not so crass as to copy.
