He also made a throwaway comment about a bar that used to be 'just down the road' The Broken Drum. Coincidence or a tiny hommage to Terry Pratchett's famous Ankh-Morpork watering hole?
He also uses the name Phil Caputo, which I think is a nod to author Philip Caputo?
I noticed it immediately ! Who could forget that name from silence of the lambs .
Yes, I saw that. Also the several Joe Hill NOS4A2 references. The easter eggs are part of the fun!
Did anyone catch the borrowed character from Silence of the Lambs: Frederika Bimmel? She was the "big fat person" that Jame Gumb killed first. In Doctor Sleep, she was a patient of Dr. John with stomach cancer...
