Nothing is said of Johnny in 1999 in OR.

When I point out that a character named Hailey appears on page 149 of House of Leaves as one of Johnny Truant’s many sexual conquests, Danielewski smiles. “I can’t believe you found that,” he remarks. He refrains from elaborating when I inquire about the relationship between this Hailey and the girl in Only Revolutions. “You know I’m not going to tell you,” he says, and then laughs good-naturedly. “I write the kind of fiction that is not about defining things.”

Weird...when Sam and Hailey were first announced, I thought of Hailey right away...

However, I don't think I could name any of the other women that wrote in to The Editors about HOL. Strange...

Thanks for the link! Great interview.
