analogues? in DRH8? i don't remember any reference to analogues, and i've
read it plenty of times. if you could pull out a line that made you think of
it as a multiverse, i would be more ready to proceed, since i never got that

well, what do you mean? i think that the world in DRH8 never shows up in
hexwood, but that doesn't mean it can't be in the same world system.

oh, so you are saying that you thought "home 8" is like a numbered world in
a series. i never got that impression, and i don't agree. i think it's just
a naming system stuck to worlds in a star system by the government or what

i don't think deep secret is a multiverse either, just a series of different
planets. rupert just uses magic to traverse the distances between. right?
