Re: Rex Deus and the Flight of stairs?

Dear Bruce:
I remember getting this message from you last week but never got around to
replying -- there were a lotta things happening on this list that took my
However, I would be leery of reading too much into 'silence'  good or bad.
Sometimes it is simply inadvertance.
I  had assumed that your original query about the stairs was about a  recent
item and hence my response (roughly: "I have never heard of this and as I go
there so regularly I would have heard")   In addition I had heard and had to
correct several rumour mill type stories over the years so that is where I
placed your query.
1990 is a year before I started getting involved in Clan Sinclair and it is
very early in Niven's attentions to the Clan. No one has pointed out the
steps to me and I have toured the place several times with locals.  All I
can suggest is the steps are not very significant in the large scheme of
things and given that they are an alternative to a part of the Castle
already well known and accessible, it sounds like everyone moved on to other
things. This is my guess Bruce, and not official.
Good and close reading of the material my brother.
