I doubt that Silk=Malrubius. I think that the real reason for Silk/Horn meeting with Severian is, firstly, to provide a sort of Chapter Zero for tBotNS, an explanation for why Severian should have this itch to be good when his li Another reason is how morally symmetrical it makes the book sequence - Severian triumphs over possibly the worst upbringing devisable, Silk over a genetic inheritance from hell (if you accept that Silk is a clone of Typhon). Just some thoughts We’ve been good. We deserve a Van de Graaf Generator. And a Tesla Coil.
