I get that. Actually, I that part of my post was more to the general idea of books even being in the works before the show was even out. Since The Black Shore is #13, I'm guessing #2-12 (#1 was a novelization of The caretaker, so its a bit different) were also started before the show. I own 1-6, and they range from decent to good, and they all seem to fit the show for the most part. Its just weird thinking of people writing (or starting to write) them before they even got to see the show.
