    On page 234 Holly mentions that Round Here's concert tour was sponsored by Sharp Cereal. Is this a shoutout to Cujo?

    I noticed that one too. There is also a reference to "Sewickley" which was one his stops on the current tour.

    I didn't even notice that one (and I'm pretty good at catching the connections)! Neat!!

    Did anyone else notice also the JRR Tolkien references?Haven't finished it yet,but
    while discussing Brady in the Brain Bucket,uses the word "tricksy", a Gollumism,and Hodges refers to Dr Babineau as Smaug...good stuff Tolkien and King together!

    I thought that too when I heard it! I finally finished the book on audio. It took me many months!! I didn't want to open the copy I got from the book tour!

    I also think Jud Crandall makes a Cujo reference in Pet Semetary.
