Musing Mondays November 11,2013

MusingMondays5Musing Mondays is sponsored by Should Be Reading and asks you to muse about one of the following each week…
• Describe one of your reading habits.
 • Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
 • What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it! 
 • Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!

I just finished Kris Longknife: Defender by Mike Shepherd.  This is a Space Opera series I have followed from the beginning.  Somewhere in the middle of the book there is a list of space ships and their captains.  In a sentence all it's own is Jack Campbell, 
Captain of the Dauntless.  That really caught my attention.  Why?  Because Jack Campbell has his own Space Opera series and the first book is Dauntless.  I don't think that this was just an accident; another author's name and the title of the first book in his series.  I think this is something planned.  It makes me wonder if somewhere in Jack Campbell's books there may be a space ship named for a book in the Kris Longknife's series with a Captain named Mike Shepherd.

If you have seen any of the same let everyone know in the comments section.
