  • T50ys -> Tsoys -> Theseus

    hey. i'm new here. well not new. old new. visited several times and read
    some interesting views and theories on HOL, for which i thank all of you,
    who contributed to those threads.

    now, i've also noticed that there seems to be a bit of tension when one
    starts a new topic on something that may have been discussed before.

    however, since the internet is a fairly large place that can do very well
    with my tidbit of data added to it, i have decided to go ahead and start
    a new thread anyway, eventho i am not sure wether this subject has
    been brought up before.

    it's just something that hit me in the shower this morning when i was
    thinking over The 50 Year Sword which I had re-read for the third time
    the night before.

    now, the abbreviation of the title is T50YS, which, if you replace the
    numbers by their corresponding letters (think h1p, l3tt3r5 etc) this
    would translate into TSOYS.

    say that aloud.

    Theseus.

    Theseus & The Minotaur

    etc etc





    just a thought.

    thanks for your time.

      Where are you getting an 'h' sound from?

      And what does that have to do with The Fifty Year Sword?

        It might start with a THeta... so... Teseus... Theseus.

          I think that's a reach. Are you implying that he worked backwards from the word Theseus to create a title for a story that has no other apparent connections to of Leaves?

          I say apparent because I haven't read T50YS, but I haven't read about any solid connections either, and I would expect any that were there to be fleshed out by the collective eye of those board members who have read it.

          Further, I would imagine that MZD intends to move on (and up) from HOL. Yes, he has written a great book. But I'm sure he's not content just with the success of HOL. He would have stopped writing if he were. Instead, he has said in interviews that he wants to keep challenging the reader; up the ante if you will.

          This is why I would hesitate to search for answers to HOL outside of HOL. I think the two projects he has completed are meant to stand alone, and I'll be very surprised if is any different.

          (Why do I have the feeling that I will be erasing this post in mid-September after the Grand Staircase is revealed to us in the first chapter of ?)

            Doesn't T50YS just mean 5 Toys, the 5 characters in the book are actually toys in the dude's box?
