Interesting Find

I remember finding this back before The Conduit came out. This can't be a coincidence. I was searching Michael Ford to see if the name had any significance, and this is what I found:

http://www.warbirdforum.com/michael.htm

It's a book titled Michael's War, which is about, ahem, Michael Ford. He goes to Ireland and gets caught up in the Irish revolution against the British from 1916-1923. I just thought that with the main character being Michael Ford, and he gets caught up in a war, it just seemed a little coincidental. Do you think that it had any influence on The Conduit?

Probably the name is a reference to this. That, or pure coincidence.

A hint from Tony? I knew I was on to something! I should have posted this when I found it. I think I'll read Michael's War sometime.
