Separated at Birth

I've been blogging over on the Veggie Box about the similarities that crop up between MNW books - for instance, North and Taking Comfort right at the beginning of MNW's life.

Have you noticed any other similarities? What do you put this down to? The Zeitgeist? Something in the water? Do certain ideas come into their time?

Right, I'm off for a bath. Ooh, don't tell me you all do that on a Sunday afternoon too...

Hmm. Given that there have been only two editors at MNW--and only one at a time--I would have been more inclined to marvel at the diversity. I mean, you might not expect the same editor to latch onto, say, A Town Called Immaculate and The Dog of the North.

Come to think of it, though, they both have a lot of snow.

I noticed that The Hoard of Mhorrer and DogFellow's Ghost both feature creepy animal eyes on the cover. And two of the book feature a double helix...

Come to think of it, there's not that much difference between any book, is there? Cats are cats and dogs and dogs. How depressing.

Happens in films too, doesn't it - Deep Impact and Armageddon, The Prestige and The Illusionist, the two films about Truman Capote (one was called Capote, didn't see the other one so don't recall the name) so maybe you're right about zeitgeist.
