<div>I haven't seen any mention of it (I've been lurking since the beginning of The Wizard postings), and I couldn't pull up anything in a search of the archives, so I thought I'd bring it up here. For any who might have missed it, "Golden City Far" is the last story in the 'Flights: Extreme Visions of Fantasy' anthology, which I think was just published in trade paperback, as well as another upcoming Wolfe collection, Starwater Strains.
<div>Anyway, the similarities are too many to be coincidence. Is "Golden City Far" the extract version (like condensed, but moreso)? Was it a jumping off point for TWK? Is there any relation to Castleview? Or am I just reading too much into it?
