Subject: (whorl) Does Gene Wolfe read this?
Date: Mon, 31 Jul 2000 03:22:43 +0000

Hello.  I've not posted before, but I've read all of the 
New/Long/Short Sun books written to date.  I've also read 
all of the Urth/Whorl archives.   Mr. Wolfe creates 
wonderful worlds.

I have to wonder whether you all are making life more 
difficult for him.  Does he read these archives? Does 
anyone know whether any of his writing has ever been 
influenced by fan speculation?  Specifically, has he ever 
revised a story due to someone having guessed a plot or 
plot twist?  I wonder what kind of secret the inhumi 
could have that hasn't already been speculated upon here. 

I'd hate to write a 12 book series with all of you folks 
second guessing my every keystroke.

Thank you all for the stimulation and speculation.  And 
thank you, Gene Wolfe.  More than once, you've taken me 
from the E train (Queens to Manhattan) into strange and 
true worlds.

before I knew you existed.  I'm pleased to share your
