Karin, bit of a late reply here because I missed this one. Not a great deal of reflection went into the naming of the Paul Pry pub in Deadfolk. There was a Paul Pry I drank at quite a bit when I was growing up, and I guess it was from that. I just love the name. (I try not to think too much.) And yes, there are a few Paul Pry pubs around England.

Thanks for reading Deadfolk!
