Interesting Coincidence

On the July 4th holiday weekend, Michael and I went to see The Last Airbender (in 3D, which made it even more cool) and one of the preview trailers was for the next Chronicles of Narnia movie The Dawn Treader (which will also be in 3D and personally, I think all movies henceforth really ought to be in 3D because it is... so cool).

We have seen The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe and Prince Caspian, but Michael, of course, has never read any of the books. And when I was a kid, I loved the Chronicles of Narnia books and I still love them and they would still be great, great stories even if there were no movies (although, I do like the movies a lot).

All that not withstanding, I thought I'd seize this chance to read The Dawn Treader to Michael in advance of seeing the movie... which will come out around Christmastime, if I remember correctly.

I've been reading him one or two chapters at a time on nights we have time to read before he goes to bed and I ran across an interesting coincidence.

At the same time, I'm reading a book by Brian Ruckley called Winterbirth which is also a fantasy fiction type book, although not at all in the same way that the Chronicles of Narnia are fantasy fiction. There is a character in Winterbirth named Drinan and the notable coincidence is that the captain of the Dawn Treader is named Drinian. I doubt very seriously that one influenced the other in even an incredibly distant or subliminal way... and makes it all the more an interesting coincidence.
