So... The Contest has come to a close... but it occured to me to take down the list of answers so those who are just coming to The 13th Hour can still give it a shot. While there are no longer any prizes, if you fill in your answers below, I'll get back to you with how accurate you really were.
HIDDEN WITHIN THE 13th HOUR
Throughout The 13th Hour you will come across a host of characters and locations, each of them unique but some with an echo in their name, an influence from some of film and literature's greatest visits to time travel.
And so as you read, see if you can find those names, they could be first, last, or nick names or a combination there of. Some obvious, some a bit more obscure, but each popular during their 'time'
So have fun as you read and the first five people who send me each and every name along with their prior incarnation (the name of the film, book, TV show, or story, etc...) via email below, will win a signed copy of The 13th Hour along with a Special Pocket Watch... where time runs backwards.
