    I’m wondering about your choice of surname for this character. The name Sim isn’t widespread in the UK and is more frequently spelt "Simm". The spelling Sim is prevalent in Aberdeenshire. Was it a coincidence that you had Maxwell in hospital in Aberdeen?

    My family name is Sim, hence my interest!

    Good book – which I bought because of the character’s name.

    Thank you.


    My take on the naming of the novel’s protagonist, Maxwell Sim, is that it is a giveaway to the meta-fictional ending – a reference to the virtual reality game ‘The Sim Family’.
