B) how the Book of Sorrows exists in-canon wasn't really thought out, so it can be assumed to be absolute truth in its conception

That's what I suspect. It's sort of how I view the grimoire in general. It presents the true lore of Destiny, it just allows the author to create cool artistic short stories rather than presenting it as a straight forward encyclopedia. I sort of just take everything there as "the truth," but I thought it was an interesting point of discussion to raise and something to think about it.

Maybe he can enlighten us in regards to how the grimoire was viewed as it was being created. Does it have a 'reliable narrator'?

The fact that there are redactions in the grimoire necessarily mean that it is not a 'reliable narrator'.

The Books of Sorrow are the text of an in-universe work. I believe there's an additional layer of authorship between the text and player because aren't they translated by Eris?
