Daniel, thanks for your remarks--in a nutshell, yes,
the Robinson books are eminently worth reading, the
Dante parallels could do with a lot of expansion (how
about it?), and the intertextuality with Le Guin's THE
DISPOSSESSED is compelling. A thought there: in a Le
Guin/Wolfe mapping, Anarres (attempt at utopia)=Blue,
and Urras (dystopia)=both Urth (old, over-exploited,
hopeless) and Green (like capitalist A-Io in THE
DISPOSSESSED, only a Darwinist Hell in place of a
Social Darwinist one.)

--Hurriedly, Nick Gevers.
