What interesting writing has been done on the overlaps between Gene Wolfes "Book of the new sun
and Iain M. Banks Culture

I'm re-reading the second volume of Wolfes New sun" books, Claw of the conciliator
, and can't shake the image that there are Special Circumstance folks and droids hiding in the corners. I'm certainly not the first to make the connection —the pre-search reveals this comment
— but a cursory google didn't turn up any longer text on the subject.
I've still to read the rest of the series, so it's spoilers territory, but I'm curious and already plan for my post-Wolfe withdrawal.
