They both focus on the same _Song_: "Go and catch a falling star..." I
agree...there's not _that_ much similarity in feeling, although the part in
HMC dealing with falling stars and trying to catch them does feel similar
to me. (I can't clarify that much without going into spoilers.)

IIRC, Gaiman stated that 8DoL was an inspiring factor for AG. They do
bothb take off from the same baseline with Mr. Wednesday and who he
represents, but, IMO, the two books veer sharply in two different
directions from there.
