This is not really a "fair" question. Wolfe is on record as saying he 
believe in ghosts, that he believes that gods (angels) ran the world before 
Christ came, etc. Thus, for him, the "fantasy" elements in his SF novels 
are just part of reality. He's sticking with reality, as he comprehends 
reality. It's not a case of Arthur Clarke's dictum that any highly advanced 
science will look like magic to the uninitiated, though that's surely part 
of it. It's also that Wolfe believe that some kinds of "magic" are real.
