Every now and then the universe does my job for me. Sometimes, by chance (or perhaps not), two books that resemble each other end up next to each other on bookshelves.

Thanks for looking out, universe.

    For the longest time I assumed The Riverman was part of Wildwood because I didn’t take a close enough look!

  2. Sam Bloom says:

    Surely Carson Ellis did the cover art for THE RIVERMAN? (I know Ellis illustrates the WILDWOOD series)

  3. Lara Starr says:

    Nice try Alex A. Lluch….
