wow.... I didn't know they didn't have them... strange.....
Well my memory has clearly failed me -- my copy DOES have the double omegas. No idea how I got it in my head that it didn't. So the only one of the four memoirs that doesn't is the first OUAW.
I'm curious if Seventeen Dollars a Square Foot has 0, 1 or 2 omegas? Or Tepee Smoke, or The Beat of the Drum and the Whoop of the Dance, or The Secrets of San Lazaro, or any of the others for that matter. I just assumed none of the non-memoir books have omegas.
Sort of. Seventeen Dollars a Square Inch has it not in the colophon....but on the last page (flipside page of the colophon) Image below.
The other books, do not have them. (I have Teepee Smoke/not Beat of the Drum though) but San Lazaro, Indian Dolls, Fechin's book, and Leon Gaspard which was published during the Chase time (2015) don't have them. Only 17 does.... but as mentioned on last page.
Educating Ardi doesn't have them or a colophon either. It just ends.
Those omega's sure look like 2's to me. It's a face-off, a reflection, twins. Today since it is 02-02-2020, I would say it has something special to do with 2's, two's, too's or to.
02022020 awesome palindrome. You might have something with that reflection thing. With a shadow on the cover of too far to walk, is he facing the water or facing away from the water. In a shadow, you cannot tell. In a reflection, like a mirror, a mirror image is flipped. Those Omega’s could be reflections of each other. Neat.
I am confused by the cover of once upon a while also. That is a reflection but it is like it’s upside down and backwards. He is fishing and the night sky is mirrored in the cover. It is hard to distinguish which way is up or down left or right with the covers of once upon a while and too far to walk.

Hi Jenny: since there are clues (for me) in Seventeen Dollars a Square Inch -- including that quadplet to Eric -- I would not be at all surprised if there is an Eric Sloane tie-in to the omegas. Two can keep a secret if one is dead, so perhaps Eric knew Forrest's hiding location.
My book has those in the back. I've only recently learned of the symbols(other than in soldering electronic stuff). I have heard these pertain to treasure hunting? They're the last letters in the Greek alphabet too I read somewhere.
