I read somewhere that Ralph Roberts was mentioned in 11/22/63,but I can't find it.I have only looked in the Derry section though to be honest

If anyone has seen this please let me know where.It would be very much appreciated

The only connections I could find were that when Ralph and Lois save Patrick Danville (amongst others) from the burning building.Patrick says to his mum "Look Mama!"..."Angels".And when Jake phones Harry's sister back in the present after his botched attempt at saving them all,she says "Harry said it was his good angel"

Also,most of the times when Ralph,Lois,Clothos or Lachesis use the portosan portal there always a wino about (Yellow Card Man?)

If anyone knows of any other connections between these two books I'd be very interested to hear them

There's lots of IT references,I'll start another thread for Insomnia/ IT connections just in case anyone hasn't read all three books

There is a It connection, I know of. 11/22/63 does mention Ritchie, Bevvie and Ben from It

I just finished Insomnia yesterday, & even though I noticed quite a few IT references (Mike Hanlon, & the Derry civic centre being designed by Ben Hanscombe, amongst others) but I didn't recall Ralph Roberts being mentioned in 11/22/63...I will have to go back & have a look through it. I must admit, when I started reading Insomnia, I thought the name was familiar, but then I recalled another book that I have read (not one by Stephen King, however) which also featured a character called Ralph Roberts. I really enjoyed this book, by the way!

I don't remember Ralph being mentioned in 11/22/63 either. :dunno:
(I'm sure I do suffer from Memory-Like-A-Goldfish syndrome though, so probably not a surprise if I've missed it.)

I seem to recall that Ralph makes an appearance in Bag of Bones. But that is from memory.

Found it.Page 56 "I looked up and saw an old man that i knew but couldn't quite place"

""Ralph Roberts" He said "I volunteer down at the red Cross.Me and my wife Lois""

Thank you RichardX

He also asked Mike if he was dealing with Insomnia, right?
