(view spoiler)[Some readers here on Goodreads as well as elsewhere on the internet mentioned that certain characters from David Mitchell's previous books (such as Luisa Rey and Timothy Cavendish) appear also in The Bone Clocks. However, in my Sceptre hardcover edition (I don't have an ARC, just regular trade edition) both Rey and Cavendish are missing. Any ideas on how's that possible? (hide spoiler)]
Mitchell Apparently Cavendish appears at the literary festival section in an advance reading copy some people got, but Mitchell removed him at the last minute just before the final version was published. I'm really curious as to why - I thought his absence in that scene was a missed opportunity.
Cecily I have a UK edition from the day of publication. I was on the lookout for characters from his other works, but there was no Cavendish and, as Emily says, Rey was never mentioned (merely that Ed Brubeck from Bone Clocks writes for Spyglass magazine, as she did).
