Hearts In Atlantis (Stephen King) Easter Egg - References to Other Books
This is the same type of thing posted about Stephen King's IT. I may have been imagining some of these, but I saw many references to previous King books. Some were obvious, like in the first story -- talk of the Beam and the Tower are obvious references to the Dark Tower series. But there were also others. Some I can remember:
The boy in the first story at one point calls the low men "Regulators", a possible reference to the story of the same name.
In the story where the man is stuck in the traffic jam (I think), he says "toot-toot, beep-beep," possible references to The Green Mile (one of the characters was nicknamed Toot Toot) and IT ("Beep beep, Richie".
A sentence in the book is "Sometimes they come back," which was the title of one of King's short stories.
I'm sure there were others, but I can't remember them right now. Anyone notice any more?
