One is Severian's analog (Ymar, imo) or Sev himself,
the other his twin sister (probably Merryn, possibly
Valeria) though I feel strongly that the sex of Sev's
twin is variable. There's a lot of gender ambiguity in
Wolfe's work, it seems to me, beginning with 5HC.


p.s. I've finished Soldier of Sidon, and I couldn't be
more pleased. If anyone else has read it, feel free to
write me offlist. Otherwise, I eagerly await the
October discussions.
