Crossover Cover: number9dream

Eiji Miyake’s quest to find his biological father in Tokyo brings him into contact with the Yazuka. In the process, he meets a Mongolian hitman named Suhbataar, who previously appeared in Mitchell’s book Ghostwritten.


  1. Mongolian Hitman would be a great name for a band.

    I never read Mitchell's work from what I've heard it's either brillant or pretentious drek. Anybody read it and have any opinions?

    1. I'm not sure I'd call him brilliant, but Mitchell's a very good writer. His books are strongly connected, so it's appropriate that both Cloud Atlas and The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet are referenced in Joe Hill's NOS4A2, which also has references to other works by Hill, and also to Hill's dad Stephen King's work, which is of course very interconnected.

    2. I may give him a look them.
