Well exactly. And surely if part of the 'fun' of the book is in working out who really wrote it (and how self-aggrandizing is that for an author, exactly?), then he should be positively encouraging speculation, including speculation that it's the work of an established author. Adshead's policy of "I'm going to use my anonymity as a point of interest for the book, but if anyone suggests that it was written by someone else then I'm going to kick and scream" is aPauling.
