As a BotNS fanatic I have noticed a complete absence (I think, any 
exceptions?) of "normal" two parent families in the series. All the child 
characters have either one or zero parents to interact with.  The closest we 
see to an intact nuclear family is Casdoe's, but of course her chapter is 
titled "the Widow".  From my lesser familiarity with his other works, I 
think this trend might extend to the greater Wolfe universe but I'm not 
sure.  Anyone else have thoughts on this?
