Jack (revjack),

	Yes you remember correctly. The passage mentioning Teasel's
affliction is in NIGHTSIDE pages 219 & 233. Silk observes that she looks
pale and has two puncture marks on her neck, which he misinterprets as Owl
bites. Another case in point demonstrating the work required for the
reader to unravel the truth about what is going on. One must second guess
the thoughts of even the protagonist to guess piece together the facts. 
It is a tribute to Wolfe's creation that so many are willing to do so.
