IIRC, he stated more strongly in the old GEnie days, that his first step
in solving the mysteries of a Wolfe story is to find the figurative if not
literal Gene Wolfe *in* the story. This certainly worked for 5HC, though I
didn't particularly think the alzabo passed muster as a "gene wolf" in the
sense Neil nominated it (it eats the family member by member) but as
genetically tampered furry pack predator  (its pack is on the inside),
