The end”; Derry; Michael Noonan; Dark Score Lake; Norris Ridgewick; Andy Clutterbuck; Kingdom; Tashmore Pond; Shooter’s Knob, Tennessee; Cleaves Mills; Harlow; Motton; and a Nite-Owl store. Castle Rock, Derry, Harlow, and Motton are recurring Maine towns in King’s fiction. Deep Cut Road is a CU version of the landmark from Dreamcatcher, which takes place in an AU. Gilead and the phrase “Bool! The end” are from the Dark Tower books, once again confirming Mid-World as an alternate reality to the CU. Michael Noonan and Dark Score Lake are from Bag of Bones. Norris Ridgewick is from The Dark Half, Needful Things, Gerald’s Game, and Bag of Bones. Andy Clutterbuck is from The Dark Half, Needful Things, and “It Grows on You.” Kingdom Hospital is from the television miniseries Stephen King’s Kingdom Hospital. Tashmore Pond is from Firestarter. Shooter’s Knob, Tennessee is from “Secret Window, Secret Garden.” Cleaves Mills is from The Dead Zone. The Nite-Owl store is mentioned in a few of King’s works.

This novel is one of hundreds of crossovers covered in my book Crossovers Expanded: A Secret Chronology of the World Volume 3, which will be published by Meteor House! Like its predecessors, this volume is an AUTHORIZED companion to Win Scott Eckert's Crossovers: A Secret Chronology of the World Volumes 1 and 2!
