Now I know this can’t be a coincidence. Okay, it probably is a coincidence, but what kind of artist would I be if I didn’t take advantage of what the universe as so generously provided.
Two Van Gogh paintings have been recovered. Allegedly they were stolen over 14 years ago and now they’ve been recovered by the Italian police. It happened so perfectly close to the publication of The Ideas in My Head that I thought, “Wouldn’t it be cool if years later, someone said I predicted this?” Alternatively, it would be even better if someone didn’t say, “Isn’t it strangely suspicious that The Perfect Cover, a story within this collection, also involved an art heist that is a creative reinterpretation of the actual heist that happened in Boston?”
Oh well, whichever option sells more books is fine by me.
