In any case, there is a strain of dystopian "what if the zeitgeist of the youth counterculture and socialist/communist sympathy of the late 1960s - early 1970s proceeds" in a huge percentage of this early Wolfe fiction, and I really do think Wolfe has an overarching series of "events" that join his social commentary stories of the 70s like Loco Parentis and Robot's Story in a somewhat unified continuity, though it is not obvious or even interconnected in terms of character to character.
Also, the compression of time in Loco Parentis (life just flying by) is going to be seen again in a much more polished and profond manner in "Forlesen".
