Does this take that much agonizing? The fact that Gene Wolfe is popular now 
is irrelevant, unless you're claiming that somehow Wolfe somehow should have 
known back then that he would be as popular an author as Vinge. Even if you 
assume he made that presumption, when you think about it it would be a 
relative miracle for a book by Vinge or Wolfe to have survived and made its 
way into a library on a planet circling another star.
