You guys are really pushing my buttons.  Let me just remind you that
many believers (Jews) and many non-believers don't think one "knows"
that the two Gods are the same, and many perceive the New Testament
God as harsher than the Old Testament god.  I imagine that Wolfe,
however, sees it as you describe.

I agree that Typhon in BotNS seems far harsher than Pas, and I
wonder whether Typhon improved the copy of himself.
