"The Wolfean Oracle Speaks"

An interview by Michael Andre-Driussi:

4. Was what Silk saw in the manteion Pike's ghost, or an aquastor, or what?
-- It was seen in the manse, not the manteion; it wasn't machine made. [DRL:
See question 27.]

27. Is Pike's ghost really Quetzal? -- No. [DRL: Which blandly leaves the
possibility that the `ghost' might still be another of the alien inhumi....
See question 4; also, below.]

I don't have the date of this interview or where it was conducted.
