Well, I'm not sure there are nearly as many narrative comparisons, but the
overall idea of Silk leading the people out of bondage to Typhon & co. in the
Whorl to arrival in a new land that (at least once Typhon's storms get going)
is "milk and honey" compared to the Whorl is obvious--the last title beginnning
with Exodus seems unlikely to be wholly spurious.  Silk is rather reluctant to
take the role of leader on himself at first, much like Moses.  And somebody did
comment on Auk/Aaron parallels.  Chemise as Miriam?
