Just got the e-arc but earlier when reading the sample, I realized that chapter 1 Castle rock (the one with the gender sensitivity seminar that sounds just like our times and incidentally for which chapter 2 shows why the main hero wasn't really concerned about) is quite different from the Castle Rock of chapter 4 (which is the one in the blurb) as Benjamin is a tenure track academic in the first (which I bet is actually our timeline for that matter), but the department chairman in the second (which is the one with the 1948 invasion of the Soviet Union by the Anglo-American transpacific alliance under President Dewey, alliance not involved in the European war btw) - this where I stopped for now but the book looks really cool (was a bit annoyed with that sample 2/chapter 1 as I was, not again, we have gender f..g sensitivity seminars in all timelines, but it seems that is just ours ...)

does this need a 'spoiler' alert since it seems to be e-arc related. I've averted my eyes from your text - just in case :-)

added in the title (it's only sample based but I get the point)
