It makes sense of a lot of things, including Blood's name ... names being quite as important in the Long/Short sun books as in the New. (Has anyone pointed out that the name of the old Calde, Tussah, is not only the name of a kind of caterpillar but also that of the fabric made from its ... silk? Riffing from there: those interested in the idea that Silk is in some sense a clone of the original Typhon, might do well to consider Tussah's "family" in the light of the family of Joseph in the New Testament...) 2. No, you're not crazy about Ma(n)hood. That's the same impression I get from _The Unnameable_, though I also have the vague impression that Mahood and Worm are actually two different characters. --Dan'l _________________________________________________________________ Get MSN 8 and enjoy automatic e-mail virus protection. http://join.msn.com/?page=features/virus --
