Did anyone else realize...
« on: September 08, 2013, 01:09:01 PM »

Throughout Scott's books, there's two Aleksandar/Alexanders, two Hobbeses, two Maddys, and two Hiros. Weird coincedence, huh? Also, in the page of one of his early books shown in his blog, there was a group called the Cutters.

It's quite common for authors to do that.

Yeah. Still interesting, though. Especially Hobbes, that one was most interesting to me (aaaaaaah, redundancy!)

J. K. Rowling did it. Hell, the Marauders of Harry Potter have their own book. She published it and it got almost no press
