I normally don't think looking at other texts is extremely enlightening for Wolfe's works but I feel differently for Evil Guest.  I happened to be looking on my computer and came across "someone comes to town someone leaves town" and started reading it.  It had a blurb from wolfe and in the opening it says:
"Alan's father was a mountain and his mother was a washing machine... his brothers were a dead man, a trio of nesting dolls, a fortune teller, and an island."

Have not read it yet  but that struck me.
