    I noticed either the aliens or Mr. King are not good at listing prime numbers , I spotted at least two mistakes: 27 (twenty-seven) and 117 (one hundred and seventeen) are not prime numbers, yet they appear in the messages sent by aliens.

    Welcome. Maybe aliens have a different set of "prime numbers"?

    Prime or not, the number 27 has significance for Derry.

    From our perspective, "alien" math is weird.

    I liked Dreamcatcher. I haven't read "N" . What is 27 for Derry , years cycle period for the stupid Monster to come and eat more kids ? Math is the same for humans , aliens and mushrooms. Is SK very bad at math ? Addition works well for him , he earns 40 mil per year :)

    If I do notice something wonky in a King story (which is rare -- I'm usually too caught up in the tale), I just chalk it up to Sai King screwing with us and move on.:biggrin2:

    If Aliens have got your "number" you'll be lucky to reach your "Prime".

    Oobleck, do you come from the Thiaoouba planet ? Google thiaoouba prophecy, you will find an amazing testimony on aliens.
    For example, I found from it that Jesus died at 90 in Japan. This is confirmed by New Testament verses (the one that says eli , eli, lama sabahtany and the other verse that says : you shall not go to Asia to spread Christianity , obviously this interdiction was put in place to keep the Apostles away from Jesus trip to Japan).
