Really? You know that Erdnase "certainly"owned a copy of The Expert
? Do you have any evidence for this? For example he might have mentioned in the book that he kept a copy for himself. Is it mentioned in The Expert
or is this just your conjecture?"...much more limiting than all the Sanders evidence combined"
Hmmm...sounds like part of the sales pitch for your overpriced $45.00 Gallaway ebook.
library wrote:He was not only in Chicago, but he worked at James McKinney at the time the book was printed there. That again is much more relevant evidence, because it means we have hard evidence of Gallaway's contact to the printer. For Sander's there is no such evidence.
So? Lots of people had contact with the printer. The author of The Expert
could have been an outsider as much as an insider. You have hard evidence that Gallaway had contact with the printer--by itself that means nothing. The printer had contact with hundreds of other people as well. And who knows? Some of them may have also owned a copy of The Expert
as well. At best, you have narrowed down the list to a few hundred men...keep going.
lybrary wrote:Just as valid or ridiculous as a complex anagram. Both are mere theories without any evidence linked to Erdnase directly.
I prefer the anagram theory above all others since there is hard evidence that Sanders played with anagrams of his own name as a schoolboy. And his name is a perfect anagram of S.W. Erdnase. That is incontestable, and most certainly much less ridiculous than the Erdnase nickname idea you conjured up.
lybrary wrote:Dr. Olsson had access to notebook entries when Sanders was a teenager. That certainly allows him to get an understanding of his habits during that time.
Get an understanding of habits from notebooks entries? From Sanders' teenage notebook entries Dr. Ollson could ascertain the depth of Sanders reading or whatever else? I can understand why you would want to believe this quackery since you handed over to Dr. Ollson a check with zeros on it. It is natural to want to believe you have received value for your money. When that nonsense is repeated in your overpriced $45.00 Gallaway ebook, then it becomes the blind leading the blind.
"The more straight forward explanation is that Gallaway is Erdnase."
lybrary wrote:Gallaway had hundreds of books in his library. Why do you think he would absorb the vocabulary of that book in particular? The more straight forward explanation is that Gallaway is Erdnase.
More of the sales pitch for your overpriced $45.00 Gallaway e-book. And despite the fact that Gallaway owned a copy of The Expert
for many years, he didn't absorb very much, just a word here and there. His writing does not resemble Erdnase in practically any way. You still have not submitted Erdnasian writing traits from Gallaway such as the dialect vernacular speech that Erdnase and Sanders utilized to create believable fictional characters. There are other writing traits that mirror Erdnase from Sanders that Bob has pointed out, and yet you cannot provide similar examples from Gallaway beyond that anemic list of alliterations.
