Hi Rick,

Those are 'dummy' questions that are set up in 
the 'new page' template that's used whenever a 
page is added to the wiki about a work of Wolfe's 
that's not yet been covered, as examples of the 
sorts of things that might be asked. The idea is 
that they should be replaced by relevant 
questions about the work under examination: but 
often the page gets added before such questions 
have been raised, and the dummm questions sometimes remain for quite a while.

Anyone coming across the page is encouraged to 
add questions, or answers, themselves, based on 
their familiarity with the work. (Any visitor can 
edit the wiki pages, once they've created an account.)

I think it was Dan'l Danehy-Oakes who came up 
with those particular dummy questions and 
immortalized them in the template
 although it was a long time ago now!

best wishes,
