The cavern club

So last night I was checking out the Wikipedia entry for William Gaddis, for no particular reason (well, OK—maybe to see if anyone had linked to this).

Flash forward a few hours! There's an interesting article in today's Times about spelunking (and, tangentially, the "blind fish of Thailand"!) . . . written by one "Will Gadd."

I've never seen this byline before.

If you write out the "missing" letters that would amplify the name into "William Gaddis," you get I AM and IS—both suggesting being. Is the late author of The Recognitions and JR, an author famous for his secretive, almost undercover persona, trying to get in touch with us, via an article about places hidden from most of mankind?
