Some writers, I'm told, look for their characters' surnames in telephone directories. I don't - it seems too obvious.

It's no accident that it was her album that ended up selling 27 million copies worldwide.
Curiously enough, I was one of the first to have some say in Hollywood. By sheer accident, I had four successes in a row in the early 30's and, although I was still in my 20's, I demanded and received approval of cast, story and director. I don't know how I got away with it, but I did!
Douglas Fairbanks, Jr.

Brian Michael Bendis
