Are Kulgan and Meecham a gay couple?

Kulgan and Meecham were characters I didn't wish to create controversy with, rather just let them live together in the woods and have Meecham disapear when Kulgan died. If you reread their exchanges, especially in Silverthorn, you can see a hint of a couple, rather than a man and servant as was publicly their roles. But two old guys living together in the woods for 20+ years? Ya, roomates.

They were gay.  However, I wish to point out, it never was anything I wanted to make a big deal about.  Remember when I wrote the book.  I started it in 1977.  But I wanted to include a gay couple that looked 100% "ordinary" to the reader.  Apparently I did OK on that.  The last hint was when they observed that Meecham vanished after Kulgan died.

Best, R.E.F.
