Baldanders was a potential future that didn't pan out, quite different from 
Typhon. The Typhon identification aside, I think this doesn't make him a 
very good symbol for the Old Sun.

You could say that Typhon is the Old Sun, but ultimately I don't think this 
is the case either; stars/suns are angelic, like Tzadkiel and Severian. If 
you're looking for a character that embodies the Old Sun then you need to 
look for a Vishnu to Severian's Shiva, and I am not so sure Typhon 
qualifies. But I may be making absolutely no sense at all here.

A side note since it doesn't seem worth a whole second post: Wolfe's comment 
to Josh Geller does make a lot of sense, but it could make sense in a few 
different ways. Do you have any more specific idea why Wolfe thought it was 
probably a good thing that he didn't read this list? As I said, it makes 
good sense regardless, but I am curious as to whether there was a more 
specific context.
