Interesting. Some of the suggested meanings had been evident to me, others are a novel idea. I'll have to reread some and look at future stories with a more insightful eye now that I've read this article.

However, I originally what thinking of the conundrum style stories, such as Masquerade by Kit Williams, The Egyptian Jukebox by Nick Bantock and A Treasure's Trove by Michael Stadther.
