It is amazing that Pocket and even David would let these WILD speculations go on unchallenged.
Why bother to challenge them? The more rampant and misguided speculation there is in advance, the more surprised people will be when they actually read it.
Besides, it's fun to see the bizarre speculations people come up with, and the totally unexpected things they read into the minimal info they have.
Let David have some peace will you so he can finish the series without all this broo ha ha. (forgive me if broo ha ha is not spelled right.)?
Brouhaha. And as it happens, Dave has already finished the trilogy (at least until the revision phase begins) and is now on a richly deserved vacation.
