Not sure I agree. Most cultures that process their own meat (as opposed to
shopping at a supermarket) consider horns, hooves, hides (skin) and sinews
(tendons) to be inedible; all, however, can be rendered down into gelatin.
So "sinew" at least for me seems part of a logical subset of possible filial
"Marrow," on the other hand, may be meant to suggest another crimelord in
another Viron; i.e., Blood.
>4) Horn harbors a distinct resentment for Sinew that is not explainable by
>any of Sinew's actions.
The -ew ending of Sinew may be a Roman-a-clef-type-clue that he represents
Wolfe's estranged son Matthew--something at least family members and close
friends would recognize.
