Andrew Mason>  Neal Stephenson's _Anathem_  is reminiscent of _New Sun_ in
a number of
ways, so much so that once, having momentarily forgotten the name of its
hero, I found myself calling him 'Severian'. It may be that Stephenson is
acknowledging this influence in naming a language (not a planet, as some
have claimed) 'Orth'.

I am a big fan of Anathem, but I just don't see the New Sun
parallels/connection -- what specifically do you see as the similarities?
 I'm intrigued.
