Synchronicity rampant…

Some of my more remarkable synchronous findings in recent gestalt reviews –

https://dflewisreviews.wordpress.com/2017/06/06/laudanum-nights-stephen-bacon/ (Magwitch, not Miss Havisham as author said he intended, but same Dickens book!)

https://dflewisreviews.wordpress.com/2016/06/08/the-brotherhood-of-the-rooster/ (rooster in DP Watt)

https://dflewisreviews.wordpress.com/2016/04/09/preinternet-preterite-preternatural/ (homing pigeon in Damian Murphy)

https://dflewisreviews.wordpress.com/2017/05/10/ornithology-sixteen-short-stories-by-nicholas-royle/ (Peacock harassment …. and also see the last two comments on this page for other reviews with bird synchronicities)
