I just received my copy of William T. Vollmann's *No Immediate Danger: Volume One of Carbon Ideologies* and was pleasantly surprised to find one of my top-five favorite writers quoting another -- Gene Wolfe! It contains this epigraph:
"We all have in us the ghosts of long-vanished things, of fallen cities and marvelous machines. Gene Wolfe, 1982"
For ease of reference it is from *The Sword of the Lictor*, Chapter XXVI, Above the Jungle.
Vollmann has read widely in science fiction starting in the late 1960's and has cited James Blish's *Cities In Flight* as amongst his favorite books. Obviously, he has not idly consumed the Book of the New Sun as well.
