terpkristin | 3766 comments I saw this xkcd today (likely from the 18th) and thought it was relevant to this group. I especially like the suggestion for the new book club. Click-through for the alt text when you hover over the comic.

Trike | 5377 comments O. Henry and O. Prah are the same person.

Jenny (Reading Envy) (readingenvy) | 2397 comments Hmm I always thought DFW was Thomas Pynchon trying to leave the house.

Robert Lee (harlock415) | 188 comments I think Seanan McGuirre and Mira Grant are the same person.

Even more shocking, I think J.K. Rowling and Robert Galbraith are the same person.

No way. They don't even write the same genre of fiction. This is just bananas.

Tamahome | 5210 comments Gil Kane used to draw under the name Scott Edward for DC Comics until Neal Adams broke that tradition. Just got that from a youtube video about the crazy Batman Odyssey by ComicTropes.

Hmm, tried to get the hover text.
