He says that there are too many holes and that it requires adding too much to the story, and I agree. The dimly remembered ancestral home described in 5HC has a yellow sun and an Earth name. And appears, in any case, to have been telepathically lifted by the Shadow Children from the minds of passing starcrosser crews. And there's no dim memory at all of people ever leaving St Anne - only of them arriving. If there's any actual evidence in 5HC to back up this theory I'm genuinely interested to hear it - but I can't think of any. --
