I'd like to thank Gene for his forbearance and kindness in answering our
question trains.  If this is the last one, so be it -- few authors would
be nice enough to do this at all, much less with such grace.

Far better the time should be spent on _Short Sun_!

As for Mint/Marble, he should realize that he makes so few mistakes that
when we see one (even if it's nearly obviously a mistake), we have to
think about it for a while!

All in all, a fine set of answers.

I wonder if as part of the liturgy (ceremony? whatever) of becoming a
nun in today's church, one specifically renounces the things Gene

To Patrick:

I think Rose has been cannibalizing Marble's parts for decades.  I sent
a suggestion to that effect a week ago which seems to have made the
"each message" list subscription but not the "digest" version.  When
Marble cannibalizes Rose's body for parts, she doesn't "take" them, she
"reclaims" them, for example.
