Gene Wolfe News and Rumors Logged by Paul Duggan

Sunday, November 10, 2002

I am posting reports of my World Fantasy convention experience on my perosonal blog, rather than here, because not all of it is is Wolfe related, and the length would scroll the relevant news too far down. But my second day at the convention has some Wolfe content of interest. You can also read my virtually wolfe-free first day.

It will be a while before my interview transcript gets posted.

We believe that we invent symbols. The truth is that they invent us; we are their creatures, shaped by their hard, defining edges. When soldiers take their oath they are given a coin, an asimi stamped with the profile of the Autarch. Their acceptance of that coin is their acceptance of the special duties and burdens of military life--they are soldiers from that moment, though they may know nothing of the management of arms. I did not know that then, but it is a profound mistake to believe that we must know of such things to be influenced by them, and in fact to believe so is to believe in the most debased and superstitious kind of magic. The would-be sorcerer alone has faith in the efficacy of pure knowledge; rational people know that things act of themselves or not at all.
The Shadow of the Torturer, Gene Wolfe.
