    Listening to "Firestarter" on audible, and Patrick Hockstetter is a shrink used by the Shop as a consult on Charlie. I love when things like this pop up!

    Um, Patrick Hockstetter
    died in 1958. Right? Oh, levels of tower and all that jazz, mmk. No, it's not really a spoiler since his death is in the chapter title: The Death of Patrick Hockstetter. Lol

    Yeah.... I've never bought this connection. I think King just wanted to f*ck with his readers, maybe? It's the same thing as one of the full names of a kid from "The Body" (I think Maybe Teddy?) being mentioned at the end of Carrie-- which takes place
    long after Teddy's death in "The Body"
    .

    Precisely, my dear Watson!
    But seriously, I agree with you.

    If you are referring to AchtungBaby's avatar that I liked it is called 'Zebra and Parachute' by Christopher Wood. I liked the absurdity of it.

    I wonder if there are many passive-aggressive characters in his novels.
