Kuhlmann’s own influences, direct and indirect, include “Gene Wolfe, Jorge Luis Borges, Paul Park, Jeff Vandermeer, and Tolkien for the Silmarillion.”Now I have yet another reason to buy Skyrim! To scour it for Gene Wolfe references! Although this may mean reading through hundreds of pages worth of in-game books... I wonder if I can justify the time this would take by calling it 'research'? I'll say 'yes'.
