I was always under the impression that Walter=Flagg
From what I understand, we are now lead to believe Flagg=Walter=Marten=Farson??
? Also having trouble understanding the Maerlyn/Ageless Stranger connection.
Again its been a while since I've read the series in its entirety, especially the first four novels entries.
This whole concept is kind of messing with everything I thought I knew about the characters in the story. Like I said, I always assumed Flagg/Walter/MiB were one and the same but unless I'm reading incorrectly he is either claimed or claiming to be Marten and John "The Good Man" Farson as well.
