Just started reading Freefall today and immediately noticed- well, I'm not going to spoil it for anyone .. What I will say however is, Mr Keith, you've been busted!
First Chapter Easter Egg
Now I'm curious. Can you tell us what general topic this easter egg refers to? Android? Another sci-fi novel/film? Something personal or private of the author?
Check out the detective roster that Harrion runs through, you might have mythed something.
I see. Well, in that case I think there are a lot more "easter eggs", though I wouldn't really call them that. It's more of a homage, like the name Rick Harrison. And, actually, what makes you think it's not just a coincidence? It's not that unusual of a last name, after all.
Oh of course I can appreciate the abundant, sci-references throughout the game and subsequently this novel, but I was pleasantly surprised to see three specific names from a popular TV show I watch.
