Subject:        Shakespeare, Poe, and Rowling

One of the friendly machines at Amazon just sent me a notification that
William Shakespeare is publishing another book.  Turns out it is an
edition of  the 1608 quarto of Lear.  But what I really found
interesting was the following notation as part of the description:

Customers who bought titles by William Shakespeare also bought titles by
these authors:

                          J. K. Rowling
                          Cliffs Notes Editors
                          Mark Twain
                          Stanley Wells
                          Edgar Allan Poe

Wells, and Cliff Notes I understand, but I thought Poe, Twain, and
Rowling was an interesting assortment.
