Welcome to the Board! You are right about the coin being an anomaly. It was meant to be an easter egg that "there are other worlds than this."

I have a problem with this novella, because it has deleted my birthday, 24th April. The body is found on the morning of 25th April, ostensibly a Thursday. But the Kid was seen in Colorado at work at 10 am on Wednesday 23rd April. So he actually had all day on the 24th to travel in leisure to New England. Check your copies, folk.

This was actually my very first King novel. Probably a little odd to start with this one....I know. I have not read any other novels King wrote being at all similar to this one.
With that being said....I loved it.....and have continued to read much more of his works.
Oh....and welcome to the board Pavlo and the birthday person.
